Designer Alain Gilles has created ‘The Pure’, a contemporary version of a classic foosball table, for ‘Debuchy by Toulet‘.
The designer’s description
The rules, the game, and the fun remain the same, but it has now been transformed into an object that can be displayed in a living room or in the lobby of a contemporary hotel for instance. The foosball doesn’t have to be hidden in the basement anymore and it is no more just for gaming centers or coffee shops.
It has been designed in order to bring a sense of warmth for those moments of togetherness with the family. With the strong use of wooden elements, quiet presence, and a reference to Nordic design it aims to be a somewhat timeless modern piece. From the top, its shape refers to modern football stadiums (soccer stadiums).
But it has also been designed in order to have a soft feminine touch and a minimal feel to make it more acceptable to women, and thus in the end acceptable in a house.
