11 - the beautiful game
by Harry / April 8, 2008

11 - the beautiful game is GRO design and Tim modelmakers's new table football table scheduled to be exhibited during Milan Design Week (from April 16th to 21st at Via Forcella 8, Milan). Per GRO Design, "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.". Unfortunately it's a prototype, only one functioning model exists. Why 11? The table is named after the number of players on each side, the term 'the beautiful game' is often used to describe football/soccer and is the title of Pelé's book "My Life and the Beautiful Game".
