“electric kid” exhibition at Rabih Hage Gallery

The Pong table is a dining table made from DuPont Corian with an aluminium base. There are 2500 LEDs integrated into the table top, together with two track pads they recreate the classic Pong game. When turned off, the integrated technology disappears completely, leaving a simple, beautiful and practical dining table.

The roulette table also features a Corian top and aluminium legs. The hanging light above the table is made form thermoformed Corian. The table surface is illuminated from within to create the roulette board, where the bets are placed. The hanging lamp symbolises an inverted roulette wheel. When the croupier activates the game, lights in the lamp start running in a circle, while the numbers on the table flash in a random sequence. When the flashing stops, the single winning number remains illuminated.

A note on random number generation: It is a known fact that there is no computer algorithm that can produce true random numbers. However it is possible to use sensors that monitor true random phenomenons to create random numbers. This approach was used in this table: the input of the croupier is a true random event, that determines the winning number, just like in the traditional roulette game.

The Corian mirror has now joined the collection at the new showroom in Via San Nicolao 4, Milano.

This piece is a more abstract design that investigates the material properties of Corian. Like the tables, the mirror is made of glacier white Corian which diffuses the light in the most beautiful way. There are 1000 LEDs integrated, including the driving electronics without adding any thickness to the classic 12mm sheet material. It reflects a pixelated image of the onlooker in real time.
