In 2020 Selfridges launched their Happy New Decade campaign. All about new ideas, new optimism and celebrating joy. We were asked to design a special collection of tables to capture this vibe. They were sold exclusively through Selfridges.
We created two brand new tables for Greenhouse Sports charity for their ‘Invest in our Champions’ campaign in Spitalfields Market. We partnered with two of our illustrator pals Hattie Stewart and Rob Flowers to create two completely unique table tops.
The tables were open for anyone to pick up a bat and play, including coaching and competitions. At the end of the campaign, the tables were auctioned with all proceeds going to Greenhouse Sports.
We built a partnership with Estrella Damm to create our Art of Ping Pong Playroom in The Book Club in Shoreditch. Every few months we gave it a fresh new look, collaborating with a different artist each time. It all started with an invite from Kelly Anna and went on to include collaborations with Lynnie Z and Jimmy Turrell.
We also used this series to showcase our brand new Maxi ArtTable with a different design from each artist on the surface.
In the summer of 2016 Art of Ping Pong was asked to collaborate on an installation as part of the launch of the new NikeCourt x Roger Federer collection, that was unveiled at the NikeLab 1948 space in London.
Working with artist Toby Melville-Brown we created sixty one-of-a-kind ping pong bat artworks that were on display to adorn the space alongside the collection.
The art piece focused on four imaginative stories that captured aspects of Roger Federer’s career and interests.
Celebrating Roger Federer’s eye for detail and his individual approach to the NikeCourt collection they created personal touches to make this piece, and each bat, truly unique.
As part of the legacy of the project Nike kindly donated the bats to the 2016 Art of Ping Pong charity auction. The auction raised nearly £6,000 for charity.
In addition to working with established artists we love to support fresh new talent. In 2015 we ran a competition with The Sir John Cass Faculty of Art, Architecture and Design.
We briefed their students to design their own bats with one lucky entrant chosen to exhibit their artwork alongside our prestigious 2015 charity auction line up.
We supported the remaining students to hold their own exhibition and auction, successfully raising £650 for BBC Children in Need.
We recently installed two outdoor tables to Cabot Square in Canary Wharf.
