Ping pong paddles aren’t precisely recognized for his or her visible panache. Sometimes constructed from cheap wooden and wrapped in black or purple rubber, they’re constructed to hit balls, not flip heads. However the design geeks at Supersmash are hoping to alter that with their newest line of putting handmade artwork paddles that blur the strains between type and performance.
Supersmash was launched in 2019 by two graphic designers and ping pong aficionados, Ramon Valle and Frédéric Savioz, who usually performed within the parks and bars of Geneva and Berlin. They dreamed up a line of ping pong paddles distinguished by artsy designs and top-shelf building, courtesy of an FSC-certified darkish wooden mix of Rosewood, Spruce and Ayous.
The distinctive paddles include fanciful names just like the French Kiss of Death, Black Hole and Woman of the Sea, and are visually impressed by wide-ranging influences spanning from Solar Tzu’s The Artwork of Warfare to “gravitational vortexes, camouflage used on ships throughout World Warfare I or tales of epic oceanic battles.”
Supersmash paddles, promoting from 56 Euros and up (about $66 USD), can be found on-line at www.supersmash.cool and start transport to the U.S. in December.
