Barbie Foot: Barbie Foosball Table

Photo: designboom

French designer Chloe Ruchon took the manly game of foosball and gave it a decidedly feminine twist: she used Barbie dolls as the foos men!

Chloe's table, Barbie Foot, was made in collaboration with Mattel and foosball manufacturer Baby-foot Bonzini. It was showcased in the DMY Berlin Design Festival 2009.

"barbie became a symbol of ideal femininity, with exacerbated body proportions
and a vast landscape of fantasies surrounding this cliche
by bringing the two worlds together 'barbiefoot' wishes to stimulate thoughts
about different mentalities and the pre- digested everyday ideas we commonly face."

Good idea, but the meaning is bs...
theres always been a soccer barbie....

barbie has been a symbol of femininity, sure, in bad ways too perhaps, but it's always carried the idea that you can be anything you want to be and everything. at least that's the image i got as a child.
