FOOSBALL TABLE The new Cristallino Outdoor is an outdoor version of Teckell’s famous foosball table in glass. The structure is made in extra clear tempered glass, but with some special materials that allow to place this foosball table on marine atmosphere.
Corian, the playing field’s surface, is non-porous and stain resistant and the players bars are stainless steel 316, a type that is highly resistant to corrosion. Cristallino’s clean lines and sleek look allow it to fit in beautifully with any décor, but the most important novelty is that it can be installed on a yacht or any boat with a special kit. primat-rd.hr
Lego builders and classic car enthusiasts alike will love the dual building routes of new Porsche 911 set. The set can be built either as the fixed roof 911 Turbo model or as the open-roofed 911 Targa at one time, allowing fans to choose between classic coupe or convertible style.
Channelling the essence of the ubiquitous German sports car, the variants feature all the hallmarks of their namesakes, from the aerodynamic shoulder line to angled headlamps and sculpted bonnet with Porsche badge and rear-mounted flat six ‘boxer’ engine. On both versions, the 2+2 sports seats and dashboard are finished in dark orange and nougat, an eclectic colour scheme based on contemporary upholstery options from the Porsche 911. Further interior details include a handbrake, gearshift and functional steering, while the front seats also tilt forward for access to the rear bench seats.
BACKGAMMON Riva imprints its aesthetic DNA on this revisiting of the world’s best-known ‘box game’. The Riva Backgammon set isn’t just a game but a genuine work of art available in blue leather. The mahogany and maple construction is a jewel of craftsmanship, with a steel Riva logo with a ‘transparency’ effect.
The white and aquamarine dice and pieces have mahogany inlays and show the same passion for detail that makes the world’s most coveted yachts so inimitable. Whatever the result of the game, the players will remember the splendour of a matchless object that entertains, furnishes and enchants.
All Pinetti games are handmade in Italy from artisans combining the soft genuine calf leather with noble materials such as walnut wood, alabaster, brass. The new brilliant Mill game is crafted with a luxury field covered in soft calf leather embellished by shiny gold details.
The gold brilliance and the eco-shell pawns give the timeless allure of the classic game and make it also elegant and perfect to enhance your living spaces. Presented with 64 pawns made in a precious eco-shell with shiny gold finishing, the Reversi game set has a wood structure with a soft calf leather cover.
