Ill-Studio has collaborated with French fashion brand Pigalle to create a multicoloured basketball court between a row of buildings in the 9th arrondissement of Paris.
Named after its location, the court is situated on Rue Duperré and was first renovated by Pigalle founder Stephane Ashpool and Nike in 2009.
Last year, the two Paris-based studios came together to update the court and create a backdrop for the Pigalle Basketball Spring Summer 2015 presentation.
The Pigalle label was founded in June 2009 and the brand launched its second line, Pigalle Basketball, in 2014.
"Stephane Ashpool, the founder and designer of Pigalle, has been playing on this court and training kids there for several years now," Paris-baed Ill-Studio told Dezeen. "We first updated the design in 2014 as a collaboration with Stephane for the launch of the Pigalle Basketball store that is located just in front of the court."
Ill-Studio took inspiration from a 1930s artwork called Sportsmen by Russian artist Kasimir Malevich – a boldly coloured oil painting that depicts four figures stood side by side.
"Sportsmen is one of our favourite paintings of all time," said the studio. "We were attracted to the subjects of the painting, but also the strong colours and graphic composition that matched the direction we had in mind."
Panels of blue, white, red and yellow ethylene propylene diene monome (EPDM) rubber – a synthetic material commonly used in playground and sports areas – have been applied to the floor.
