Some of our best Pool Table Project Creations

Pool Table Ideas

Pool Tables haven't always been plain and dull, under the surface is where the true magic happens - with inquisitive designs and enchanting projects being commissioned. At Snooker & Pool Table Company, we have been involved in numerous projects made-to-specification - some creations of which you may find of fancy. Who said ideas have to be limited?

Loop the Game

 

In 2015, we created and released anbe elliptical pool table on commission for Alex Bellos (mathematician and journalist) creation LOOP. This was a reinvention of the game we know best but played on an elliptical pool table with three colour balls and one white. To win the game, you must pot a colour ball and then the black ball before your competitor. This project was featured in a wide array of online outlets, including Wired Magazine, The Guardian, BBC, London Evening Standard amongst more.

Carambole with Pendulum

Carambole with Pendulum

In the late 1990s, we were commissioned to create an Oval Snooker Table as a creation of an art piece called 'Carambole with Pendulum' for artist Gabriel Orozco - a Mexican artist whose work explored drawing, photography, sculpture and installation. This full-sized table with no corners or pockets allowed the regular rules of pool to be thrown out, enabling the reinvention of rules, scores and limits of the game we all know so well.

The Carambole with Pendulum was first presented at a gambling den in London in 1996, before finding its way to be exhibited across the world in the Tate Modern London and the Museum of Modern Art in New York.
