The Pure by Alain Gilles: A Foosball Table Inspired by Nordic Design

View all 19 Photos

The Pure is a stunning foosball table created by the Belgian designer Alain Gilles for Debuchy by Toulet, a French brand that was jointly founded by the esteemed pool table company Toulet and the footballer Mathieu Debuchy. Round-edged and minimalist, the modern design takes its cue from soccer stadiums and Nordic furniture.

The oval shell is made from thermoformed PMMA; the legs and tabletop are crafted from oak wood; and the players and bars are fashioned from chromed metal. Altogether smooth and elegant, the resulting foosball table is nice enough to display in the living room year-round. The design is available in a variety of finishes, including white and black colorways, and each unit is numbered. Buy here.
