RS#folding ping-pong table: when “design” and “folding” join forces
RS Barcelona launches a new folding ping-pong table concept that brings together functionality, playability, toughness and, of course, design
When it comes to ping-pong tables, it seemed impossible that the concepts of “folding” and “design” could join forces. But RS Barcelona has managed it. It’s taken us many hours of engineering, lots of testing of materials and finishes, quite a few prototypes and a series of modifications. But we’ve got there in the end. Just like we did a few years back with the football table, designing the RS#2, we’ve given the folding ping-pong table a new twist with the RS#folding.
The RS#folding is a new folding ping-pong table concept. Until now, most of the folding ping-pong tables in the market have been strictly functional, with design taking a back seat. The RS#folding restores design to its rightful place. It combines the functionality of a folding ping-pong table with the signature design of RS Barcelona products. Because design needn’t be incompatible with functionality and playability.
The RS#folding boasts standard ping-pong table measurements (108x72x30 in) cm, while its surface, design and structure provide total playability, stability and toughness. Just like a professional ping-pong table.
Thanks to the RS#folding you no longer need to miss out on ping-pong due to a lack of space. Once folded, using a simple mechanism located underneath the tabletop, it takes up little space. And you can easily move it to the most convenient spot thanks to its tough all-terrain wheels.
The RS#folding ping-pong table has been designed by Rafael Rodríguez, who over 10 years ago designed the RS#2 football table, the first product of RS Barcelona.
His hands speak. They tell of many years of hard work in the family workshop making moulds. Until the day he said "Why not?" and he brought forth the greatest football table ever seen. From time to time since then he finds himself floating. More often than not, his feet don't touch the ground. His eyes light up. These are the classic symptoms of a hungry person, of someone who needs to satisfy his creative urge. As he himself says, "creativity is not something with its source in the mind; it's a gut feeling".
RS#folding ping-pong table is made of high quality materials to ensure maximum playabilityand long life.
