Designer Alain Gilles is the latest to put a contemporary spin on the prototypical foosball table, crafting The Pure for Debuchy by Toulet. As much an art piece as a game, the table was originally unveiled back in March by the French Football Federation and utilizes an oak top and legs along with a PMMA shell while both the players and bars have been machined of chromed aluminum. Said Gilles of the design:

The Pure is the modern vision of a classic foosball table. 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, and 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. But it has also been designed in order to have a soft feminine touch and a minimal presence to make it more acceptable to women, and thus in the end acceptable in a house.

Measuring 159 x 93 x 98 cm and available in an array of wood finishes and colors, The Pure can be purchased now directly from Debuchy by Toulet.
