The Pingtuated Equilibripong table is made from exotic wood and reclaimed materials.

From an initial glance, Axel Yberg's table looks like a work of art with its polished wood finishing, glass cut-out center and intricate metal details. Upon closer inspection, you'd realize that it's a recreational ping pong table that can also be easily converted into a dining table or spacious work desk by removing the ‘net' part.

The table is made from seven species of exotic wood, including black walnut, cherry and holly. The metal trimmings are made from reclaimed plumbing pipes and fittings and aircraft cable. The name of the table, Pingtuated Equilibripong, is a play on words of Stephen J. Gould's theory of evolution: Punctuated Equilibrium.
