french open: swag with swagger

by

This should be required for all the majors.

Roland Garros stringer Laurent Lucas tapped French design outfit 5.5 Designers to reinterpret the clay major in “3 Sets”. And what they came up with is now up for sale online: the Break Stool, a wooden racquet transformed into a side table (~$450); the Ace carafe (~$80) and four glasses (~$100), inspired by empty tennis ball cans; and the 15/30 chalkboard (~$125), modeled after the tournament bracket.

What do you think of these pieces? Tell us!

More: Buy the goods here and read the release, in French, on the 5.5 website.

    I love the side table. I never would think of something like that. I wonder how sturdy it is.
