Pool Tables : The Banana Pool Table

If you’ve read our previous articles on various pool tables, you’ll know we’re massive fans of new designs - no matter how wacky they are. The brand new Banana Pool Table is here and it’s more crazy than we could have ever imagined. The unique take on a traditional pool table and striking colours have created a big media buzz around the release of this design. 

It was designed and created by Cléon Daniel - a British designer based in Dorset. He’s previously released a book ‘Unventions’ which is full of his own hilarious, wacky designs like the Self Replacing Biscuit. His book did very well and as a result, he decided to keep developing his work. This was around the time he came up with the Banana Pool Table design. In an interview with the Daily Mail, Cléon explained that the idea came to him during a train journey and that he immediately wrote his ideas down and planned to work upon a prototype with an old family friend. Work started on the table in May 2012 and was completed 9 months later. 

It’s handcrafted in the UK from solid ash with a bespoke Banana Yellow coloured cloth. The pockets are fitted with custom made, solid brass pocket plates and high grade leathers with a funky string net underneath. To make the table more personal, you can even get it engraved with your name, a personal message and or add a logo cloth to the design.

The pool table is approximately 80cm high, 140cm wide and 260cm long which makes it the perfect size for any games room.
