When life pongs, ping
Supersmash found its roots back in the noughties, with the friendship of two guys playing ping-pong in the parks and bars of Berlin and Geneva. Since we both are graphic designers, we started to think how cool it would be to have paddles that actually look good, rather than are just functional. We also wanted them to be diverse for everyone to find a pattern that fit their style.
With this in mind we designed an intentionally ambivalent object, and let you decide whether Supersmash is a functional item, or a decorative one. So, are you going to hit the ping-pong square or just display your racket next to your dog picture? We leave this up to you, but remember: “No matter what happens… never, ever take your eyes off the ball” (Forest Gump).
