cyril lancelin of town and concrete has envisioned a basketball court where the game isn’t only for the players but for the spectators as well. by using pink doughnuts as elements of the fence and supporting structure for the baskets, the designer has created a colorful court with decorations that double as street furniture.

some of the tori and squares featured on the fence are made of a thin wooden structure wrapped in foam and covered with protective fabrics like the ones usually found on poles at sports venues. the other pieces are inflatable and bumpy. from the fence, the playful grid spreads onto the ground where the geometry is presented in blue colors and pink playground markings.

‘when producer jérémie nassir of trajectoire, art x basket asked me to think about a basketball art installation, I imagined the court as an immersive installation where the spectator plays as much as the player,’ says cyril lancelin, founder of town and concrete. the installation continues to showcase the studio’s impactful aesthetics where bright colors and inflatable structures take centerstage. for reference, please see town and concrete’s knot and pink flamingo sculptures.
