11 The Beautiful Game

Gro Design is a multi-disciplinary design frim, specializing in product, furniture and strategic design, situated in the Netherlands. Gro Design created this unique luxury indoor soccer table. This is a limited one-off prototype edition, there is only one in existence. This prototype was recently auctioned off in Europe at a hammer price of 48,000.00 Euro making it one of the more expensive design objects in the world and without question, the most expensive soccer-table in the world.

Sweeping space age organic curves reflect the beauty and style of this wonderful modern soccer table. As well as ensuring visual impact and consistency of design, the bright-silver chrome finish of the figures mirror soccer players status in sport and society.

Playing games get a totally new approach when the design discipline modifies the codes. For many of us, table soccer is a game that is close to our hearts, holding cherished memories of our childhood and youth. Its popularity also reflects the passion and love that millions of people around the world share for 'the beautiful game' of soccer. Many new soccer stadiums built in recent years have a strong architectural and sculptural beauty, becoming city landmarks in their own right and enhancing the visual landscape of the local environment. Gro Design wanted the design of the "11 The Beautiful Game" soccer table to be equally spectacular and memorable, enriching the interior space where it will be placed.

Gro Design was interested in creating atmosphere through form, color, material and subtle use of light, bringing a heightened sense of drama and excitement to the game. The table's flowing lines express the dynamic aspect of soccer, while reducing unnecessary detail to allow the raw energy of the game to come to the fore.

Table soccer is great fun to play - it's social, active and offers a welcome alternative to the solitary activity of computer gaming. And at 48,000.00 Euro, chances are you will want to play this as much as possible to get your moneys worth!
