Porsche Design Studio Creates a Pool Table for 247 Billiards

Porsche Design Studio—the luxury brand that Ferdinand Alexander Porsche, the designer of the Porsche 911, founded in 1972 after his tenure as the automaker’s head of design—has designed a pool table for 247 Billiards that reflects the simple elegance and clean lines for which the studio is known. The 247 Billiards Table, priced at $29,500, eschews traditional pool-table design, replacing the typical bulky, staid wooden frame with a sleek, contemporary body crafted from stainless steel finished with luminous Corian. Highly customizable, the table’s body is available in over 30 different colors and its cloth in more than 20, ensuring that there is a combination to suit any decoration scheme.

The table, which is offered in 7- and 8-foot-long versions, comes with a matching cue rack, four cues, a triangle, and a set of Aramith balls—the brand of billiard ball used by many professional leagues, including the United States Professional Poolplayers Association. A three-piece panel of slate beneath the cloth ensures that the table’s playing surface is absolutely level, giving players confidence that each shot will travel true. Each table is handmade in Austria; from order time, delivery will take five to seven weeks. (www.247billiards.com)
