Description from Design Within Reach
This Teak Croquet Set (2008) combines smart design and quality construction to create a modern interpretation of the classic lawn game. A collaboration between designers Hans Thyge and Akiko Kuwahata, this set packs efficiently into the included teak box, providing compact storage when the game’s not in use. The box has an integrated handle for easy transport and is compact enough to be thrown in the car and taken to the park. Croquet first became popular in the Western world in the mid-1800s, and the game has changed little since then. Designed to be played by up to four people at a time (or three Heathers), the set consists of four mallets, four balls, 10 hoops and two pegs, and should be played on grass.
Materials : Teak box, mallets, balls and pegs; stainless steel hoops.
