Hoops!

Art and design are often viewed as something purely aesthetic, which I have come to learn is absolutely not the case - so of course, when I come across something that brings together functionality and aesthetics, I have to share.

Vincent Le Thuy (founder of the magazine Sole Collector), brand Pigalle helped by Nike and creative minds working at Ill Studio have recently launched a project of renovation for the basketball court Duperr√© in Pigalle (Paris). It opened on the 1st July, featuring vivid colors and squares that appear like a breathe in the middle of the two concrete buildings that overhang it. The ground was designed from a “recycled rubber gum that absorbs the ball’s noise” in order to solve the problems of noises that threatened this court to close last year.

Now, do you still believe art and design are solely aesthetic?
