Soccer Cage for Adidas

Adidas pushed the idea of street football to a new level. Three goals arranged in a triangular plot created a constant flux of defensive and attack between two teams.

The plot is part of the Adidas campaign “speed of light” lunched in 2017.

Together with Jochen Mehr Architects we developed the layout and rendered the spectacular plot. The cage travelled to several location in Germany to host tournaments in a never seen before plot.

Adidas Soccer Cage - Plot

The novel plot with three goals and special light effects provided for fast and goal-rich matches in which the participants asserted themselves through fast and tricky moves.

Two teams face each other in this new game. The teams have to score into the illuminated goal. The active goal can be changed by the referee.

The plot is based on an isosceles triangle to generate three equal corners. Each goal is equipped with special lighting. The cage design is very transparent to allow spectators to take great pictures while being stable enough for the fights between the teams.

Sculpture by Hannes Michanek

In summer 2015 the artist Hannes Michanek approached me with conceptual sketches for his sculptures. Together we developed a 3d model of the precise geometry. Two bigger and six smaller sculptures were designed and prepared for production.

The exact geometries were milled into the foam using a three axis cnc machine.  Finally the foam was covered with a  very durable PU coating and a matt color finish.

Finally the sculptures were exhibited in Kunstverein zu Assenheim.
