Calma e Gesso Adds Elegance To Billiard and Ping Pong Tables

calma e gesso billiard and ping pong tables

Gregg Brodarick of the B<D> Collection teamed up with Adriano Design of Italy to create the perfect duet of Italian style and technological innovation with Calma e Gesso, a brand that creates and manufactures elegant and unique game tables for billiards and table tennis.

Calma e Gesso Billiard and Ping Pong Tables

The brand’s philosophy is embodied in its name – Calma e Gesso – the Italian expression that originated in the world of billiards. It encapsulates that moment of reflection – ‘calma’ – that the player takes before a difficult shot, carefully considering his next move while rotating chalk – ‘gesso’ – on the tip of his cue stick.

The brand was launched with their elegant glass crystal interpretation of the classic game of billiards, the Filotto. Followed by a limited recycled wood and glass crystal edition of the Filotto. The third and newest product is their crystal glass version of a ping pong table, the Lungolinea.
