AS THE UNDISPUTED MASTERS OF GLAMORIZING ACCESSORIES, LOUIS VUITTON TAKES THE TITLE ONCE AGAIN WITH THIS FULLY DYNAMIC AND UTTERLY BREATHTAKING FOOSBALL TABLE
BY MATT MIZRACH
From dorm rooms to man caves, there’s no showcase of the male (or female!) competitive spirit more iconic than the foosball table. Originally known as table football or table soccer, the game borrows rules and gameplay from both of those established sports, and it has even become mainstream in its own right. Tables consist of two teams of small figurines attached together by metal rods, manipulated by players who score points by hitting a game ball into the opposing team’s goal. As Louis Vuitton is inclined to do, the Italian designer has totally luxeified a table design of its own making its mark with an elaborate and thoroughly glamorous foosball table that demands admiration and attention. This traditional 59 x 38 x 40-inch table is draped in classic LV monogrammed canvas and features durable Epi leather top coverings. The mini players are hand-painted, inspired by a 1921 LV groom illustration. Cowhide leather handles ensure a comfortable grip, and gold-colored hardware is dispersed throughout, offering a brilliant (albeit distracting) contrast.
