11 The Beautiful Game of Foosball
Donn, a former student of mine, and an Intern at Gro Design recently sent me notice of a very cool foosball (link to what is foosball?) project he was part of. Finally someone is sitting up an taking notice!
As an object, the football table has lacked serious design attention in recent years. While new football stadiums built in recent years have a strong
architectural and sculptural beauty, football tables remain less desirable objects as their cost-driven appearance no longer fits in with the designed
landscape of modern interiors.
‘11’ breaks with this tradition by creating atmosphere through form, colour, material and subtle use of light, bringing a heightened sense of drama
and excitement to the game.
This design was a collaboration between Gro Design and Tim modelmakers and will be exhibited during the Milan Design Week 2008, 16th – 21st April, Via Forcella 8, Milan, Italy.
Great stuff guys and Donn, thanks for the heads up.
