A Sculp­tural Sile­stone Ping Pong Ta­ble by Ron Arad

Cosentino Group part­ners with pres­ti­gious con­tem­po­rary designer Ron Arad, in the con­cep­tu­al­i­sa­tion and pro­duc­tion of 10 Lay­ers, a unique con­vex ping pong ta­ble made from Sile­stone quartz by Cosentino. Sculpted from 10 slabs of Sile­stone quartz slabs, the ta­ble is a sculp­tural won­der; cur­va­ceous and dra­matic in a beau­ti­ful blend of mono­chrome colours.

Ron Arad waxes lyri­cal about his cre­ation, “The idea for 10 Lay­ers came in the ex­tra­or­di­nary plant of Cosentino. When you look at the state of the art pro­duc­tion of Dek­ton and Sile­stone, al­though you are there for a com­pletely dif­fer­ent pur­pose – cladding a tower, you can’t help but think ‘what else can we do with this mag­i­cal ma­te­rial? We want to do some­thing where we en­joy the ma­te­rial in a dif­fer­ent way.”

“I’ve done a ping pong ta­ble made of stain­less steel and bronze, not a flat one, but one with a curved belly in its length. The idea was to slow the game down and make the ral­lies longer. The lay­ered stone and the CNC milling al­lows us to make it curved in all di­rec­tions, i.e. a huge con­cave sur­face (con­vex in its un­der­belly) made of 10 dif­fer­ent coloured lay­ers. When you ma­chine away the sur­faces, the flat lay­ers be­come per­fect cir­cles in sharp, con­trast­ing colours.”
