Yberg said that the table required over 400 man-hours to construct. Comprising over seven different types of wood and reclaimed metal objects, the table has a hollowed-out centre that reveals the warm glow of an Edison bulb. The top has been coated in a high-gloss lacquer, providing a slick contrast to the unfinished, industrial look of the rest of the table. To top it all off, the net can be removed, and what was once a game table becomes a dinner table.
On display at ICFF 2012, Yberg said that the table is a one-of-a-kind piece selling for an eye-popping $US56,000 (which kind of makes sense, given the time that went into the project). But he also plans to produce a simplified version for retail as well.
