Slice by Snarkitecture is Not the Average Ping Pong Table

Slice by Snarkitecture, an art and architecture studio based in Brooklyn, New York, is a ping pong table, even if it doesn't resemble one at first glance. Upon closer inspection, the low mid-divider becomes a dead giveaway for its true purpose. A dark and slightly menacing design, it sets the tone for the ensuing matches. Nevertheless, there is a whimsical vibe to Slice by Snarkitecture by way of its bottom portion.

Resembling some kind of topographical landscape, Slice by Snarkitecture definitely has a split personality. While the top is all business, the bottom is a sculptural party. Its sculptural nature is achieved through differently shaped slices, hence its name. When not in use, the ping pong table becomes an art piece.
