In the news: Cee Cee Berlin
From Berlin, about Berlin. Since it was launched in 2011, Cee Cee Berlin has been telling Berliners what's what in the world of design, food, style and culture every single Thursday.
So we were thrilled to see that our table tennis Gift Set featured in their weekly round-up recently, urging local Berliners to make the most of the longer evenings by grabbing a Toucan set and heading to one of the city's many public ping pong tables.
Here's what they had to say:
"The city of Berlin is known for many things: its eclectic culture, its vibrant street art scene, and its constant evolution… But did you know that it’s also home to one of the world’s most thriving street table tennis scenes? There are multiple tables available for hobbyists and those who want to try a fun way to pass the time, with 2575 public places for table tennis across the city that serve as the boiling point of unforgettable matches throughout the approaching Summer. And what better way to give your sizzling game an edge than with beautifully designed rackets set that are sure to catch the eye of every player.
That’s how Toucan came into play, a Berlin-inspired brand that launched its first collection of products in October 2022. Founder Dan Zell brings an independent approach to the beloved game commonly known as ping-pong, centered on thoughtful design, environmentally friendly materials and sustainable manufacturing practices. It is aiming to give table tennis players a better choice for their equipment ... Toucan is a perfect addition to Berlin’s many public spaces where freedom and self expression are in every corner.
Time to grab that racket and enjoy this outdoor sport activity that can be played by people of all ages, and new friends in your kiez."
