Upon the unveiling of the iconic table, DHS General Manager Mr. LOU Shihe stated “The show court table for 2017 World Table Tennis Championships is based on the design of the 2015 event Rainbow table. Its overview becomes much more stereoscopic and layered with the fusion of the German Flag element and the event logo, illuminated by the LED light system. In this case, the whole table takes on a good combination of its visual identity and color blending if it is shot at a lower angle and closer distance to bring about a fresh experience for spectators.”

In 2005, they introduced the “Rainbow Table” which was a revolution in show court tables. This year they keep their icon but with a bold new table top color, black and combine it with the German national colors. A sleek look which shows how strong design mixed with amazing Colors can help showcase the sport of table tennis at the highest level. I guess we can also see with this table that the relations between China and Germany are also strong, the World Champions in the two most Global sports in the World – Table Tennis and Football.”
