Here we see the classic Adidas Telstar ball from the 1970 World Cup. Said World Cup was the first to be televised live, and the ball was given contrasting colors to improve its visibility on television (hence the name). Although Adidas has unfortunately moved away from this classic icosahedral design in recent World Cup balls (a decision I believe they will come to regret), the Telstar remains the archetypal soccer ball design in popular culture, due presumably to the enduring aesthetic appeal of its hexagonal geometry. Modern balls that do not feature an actual contrasting color tiling often still use truncated icosahedral panels, presumably due to their structural superiority over other methods of ball enclosure.

After 8 years as a sleep expert in a couple of mattress stores and seeing thousands of people experiences with many brands, he decided to write and put all of these years of experience into help guides so others can make the right decision when buying sleep products without having to suffer sleepless nights as a result of choosing the wrong mattress.
