BLACK LIGHT TROPICS << previous | next >>

The Pool Table LIGHT TROPICS is a collaboration between Hillsideout and Hermelin Billiards Milan leader in the industry since 1825 and was built around the concept of an elegance, light, contemporary and handmade design.

 

 

After the first American Pool tables, Hillsideout introduces this light version for professional home-use. BLACK LIGHT TROPICS is smaller in size and 7 times lighter than an American Pool table. The heavy slate usually used for the top has been substituted with bakelite.

 

Besides being a billiard table, it is also a cocktail table due to the paravent which works as well separately. Hence, the billiard table comes with a paravent-cover which can be used horizontally and then the billiard table becomes a cocktail table. And int can be used vertically as a standing paravent which five parts can be moved easily.

 

 

The woods used is a mix of Italian and certified colourful Amazonian wood. It is a very pictorial piece due to the beauty of the hand designed colourful inserts made of wood but also due to the four table legs which's forms were inspired by architecture in the paintings by Lyonel Feininger. The used materials and the form in this piece feature the complexity the Amazonian rain forest is currently facing.
