From an iron factory to a design shop

Retro table soccer has been all the rage for decades in Spain. RS Barcelona is a small iron shop, and ten years ago, the company began selling the game as a practical and well-designed interior piece. Since then, the shop has marketed sofas, tables, and other furniture items that have led to a new concept store. Not only do they sell their soccer table, but they also sell carefully selected items from all over the world, many of which are from Spain. Vincon, one of the most prestigious design shops closed after seventy-four years of business, so locals are looking forward to something to take its place.
