A Rubber Coated Basketball Court That Looks Like An Eye Popping Piet Mondrian Painting

ball4 ball3 ball2 ball1

A recent project set into motion by a group of creatives in Paris, namely Vincent Le Thuy, the brand Pigalle and a group of creative from Ill Studio combines sports, art, and design in this recent project. The Duperré playground has stood fully renovated in the 9th Arrondissement since July 1st and its presence brings a splash of color and light to the classical grey architecture of Paris.

The court is made from “noise absorbing recycled rubber’ which gives it plus points in both the realms of noise complaints and the environment. The floor and the walls of the court, which is wedged between two buildings, are made of this material, which adds to the surreal aspect of the place. The use of color blocking as well as square and rectangular shapes in the design are also artistic on a deeper level in the sense that they are visually reminiscent of the work of Piet Mondrian.

This basketball court is a true trans medium work of art in the sense that it transcends the conceptual aspects of sports and design and brings it all home by being more than a concept and by being both an aesthetic and urban improvement. The technical aspects of the court eliminate noise pollution while the bright primary colors bring a splash of sunlight the Parisian urban décor.

The Collaborative Paintings Of Young Sons

Drew Liverman

I’ve known Drew Liverman longer than most other people in my life. Since the age of 14 we’ve gotten into all sorts of trouble together. At times we’ve lost touch for a year here or there but I feel a special connection to him that only happens when you spend your formative teenage years skateboarding and getting in trouble for graffiti together. One thing has been made clear over the last two decades of friendship with Drew. This guy is a creative super talent. I’ve always admired Drew’s creative abilities with anything that he takes on, whether it be our teenage graffiti shenanigans or his raw ability to jump from design, illustration, or painting with ease. With that said it’s no wonder that Young Sons, Drew’s latest collaborative project with Michael Ricioppo is also a visual feast.

Young Sons takes the concept of collaborative painting to new heights. Mixing a cornucopia of visual references from abstract expressionism to saturday morning cartoons, Ricioppo and Liverman work back and forth in unison and with intuitive speed canceling out, editing, and adding to one another’s marks. The result is a controlled chaos of line and form that is a bold mix of stream of consciousness and disciplined control.

See the work of Young Sons at Mass Gallery in Austin Texas through November 24th 2013 and read Andrew Bourne’s interview with them on Bomb.

Design Month: Chen Chen

Chen Chen’s products are at once beautiful and repulsive, which is what I love about them. Imagine serving your guests a frosty beverage on his “Cold Cuts” coasters or arranging your Lilies of the Valley in his “Swell” vase.

Sveinn Davidsson

Sveinn Davidsson

Icelandic designer Sveinn Davidsson has garnered some much deserved attention as of late, mostly for his work with demolished cars. Although most of his press has stemmed from the signage and promotional work in the ‘Cargate’ project for the ’07 Iceland Academy of the Arts graduation exhibition, I find his typographic work to be the most impressive. Davidsson’s typographic designs and logo designs are all so clean and polished, but not that sterile type of design that lacks the human touch, he adds illustrations to his type showcasing his capabilities with a pen and a mouse.
