In 2005, Edinburgh-based The Eleven Forty Company made the ‘Opus’ and with it simultaneously invented and owned a whole new category of product: football tables handmade, precision-engineered and technologically-equipped to the highest and most imaginative specification comprehensible to man. This special edition ‘Good versus Evil” table convenes the ultimate adversarial battle on the turf (or toughened frosted UV etched glass) of the beautiful game and it’s ‘Souls’ not goals that are at stake. There were clearly large squads to choose from on both sides, but the final line-ups face up like this:
GOOD XI: CLAUS (as in Santa), MORE (as in Sir Thomas), MOORE (as in Bobby), GORDON (as in Flash), ROBIN (as in Christopher), GOD, ASSISI, JEKYLL, POPPINS, TERESA, M.K.GANDHI.
EVIL XI: POT, LUCIFER, CALIGULA, RIPPER (as in Jack), IMPALER (as in Vlad the), HITLER, MACBETH (as in Lady), HYDE, KLEBB (as in Rosa), AMIN, CATCHER (as in The Child).
Created exclusively for 20ltd.com, this special edition piece is limited to only 20 editions.
