Absolutely “the beautiful game!” This sculptural version of the classic table football game is a stunner. The stadium effect is conveyed with a matte black shell, white playing field, lighting effects and gleaming chrome footballers, accented by a vivid orange game ball.

Designed by GRO design and Tim Modelmakers, the game table will be shown during the upcoming Milan Design Week April 16-21 2008.

Implications - After the recent recession, consumers are eager for entertainment and little bits of luxury. Re-vamped classic games like this one allow consumers a sleek and stylish entertainment option for their households. Industries can adapt to this trend by making old favorites more stylish and sleek to meet demand.
