Paris Has One Of The Coolest Looking Basketball Courts

Somewhere in Paris, there is a basketball court so beautifully painted and hidden away between rows of buildings, that it almost looks fake.


The French fashion brand, Pigalle, has continued their collaboration with Ill-Studio to once again redesign the ever changing pop-art like basketball court that has quickly become infamous in its design.

Before we get into this, we have to admit that we never thought a basketball court could look so much so like an actual work of art than we do now after seeing these pictures.

While the court is full functioning and meant to be used, the design is also utilized as a part of a collaboration between both studios, as well as Nike, in an effort to highlight the Pigalle basketball store that is located out front.

The court, which was originally redesigned in 2009 by Pigalle and Nike, has since undergone multiple changes with its color scheme, but has kept with the general geometrical theme.

It’s often sunny in Pigalle!! 1love to the Traoré familly. 👏🏻❤️ #pigallebasketball #dpr #pppdiary

It seems almost a shame to play on the court for fear of messing up the design, but as time has proven, it looks like the colors hold up pretty well.
