Louis Vuitton Adds Babyfoot To Its Art of Gaming

The French luxury brand reveals BabyFoot as the latest design in its games range

Louis Vuitton is elevating the art of gaming to a whole new level with its Babyfoot foosball table. Named after the French moniker for a version of the foosball table created by Lucien Rosengart, this playful product features many of the house’s codes and retraces Louis Vuitton’s vibrant history from 1896, the year when its famous Monogram was created, until today. For more than 150 years, Louis Vuitton has accompanied travelers and designed trunks to carry their games. From chess and backgammon travel cases to poker and croquet trunks, the house’s made-to-order games collection has expanded and evolved over the years, continuing Gaston-Louis Vuitton’s love of sports and games.

Babyfoot is available as a made-to-order special product and is available in the iconic Monogram canvas, the darker Monogram Eclipse and Damier Graphite. It also comes various colors of vibrant Epi leathers such as cyan, pistachio, fuchsia along with a bi-colored caramel and white variation in smooth leather.

The foosball table is created with the same level craftsmanship as any other Louis Vuitton trunk. The body is made from wood and then covered with canvas or leather, then treated to numerous layers of hand-applied edges on the corners. The players are inspired by Louis Vuitton’s “Groom,” the famed character from the house’s 1921 advertising imagery and are hand-cast in aluminum. Each is then meticulously hand-painted by expert artisans in team colors to compliment the custom canvas or leather table. Artisanal jewel-like counting coins boast a striking hand-painted Monogram flower to make tallying record wins even more satisfying.
