Now instead of having messy cables running to a plug extension on the floor, you can have the joy of messy cables running down the leg of your table. Having won a red dot this must be the way of the future, but I just love the red light at the top.

I’m such a fan of these table people created by Lila. She lives in Hamburg with her brother, her sister and her uber creative parents, Barbie Hein and Seth Turner. She must love when her family have get-togethers to be able to charm these table characters out of an ordinary table setting to join them for their meal.

When I worked for the architect Remy Butler, We used to bring our ping pong bats to work with us to play in the park downstairs on rue de Bretagne. On summer evenings when working late it made all the difference to pop downstairs for 20 minutes of table-tennis in the early evening before hitting the computers till mid-night.
However if we’d had one of these nifty roll up nets from decathalon sports stores, we could have played on the boardroom table during the darker months too. Way better than the old screw on metal systems, it clips on in an instant and net rolls into the up-stand when you’re finished.
This sport has come a long way from it’s early days when it was called “Wiff Waff”. It was invented in the late 19th century by British army officers batting a cork overs a over a row of books across the middle of a dinning table. Turning unruly behaviour into a sport seems like a wonderfully English thing to do.
