niceballs dangle beneath your desk so you can discretely de-stress


niceballs is a dangling prosthetic accessory that allows users to discretely de-stress under their desk. designed by spanish creative agency imaginarte, the malleable object sticks easily and efficiently to any workspace, carefully suspended beneath any solid surface. its irregular shape and undulant curves encourage relaxation and provide a few moments of escape during a hectic work day.

the imaginarte team has envisioned niceballs as a necessary desk accessory for workspaces across the world. the reimagined stress ball mimics the weight, balance and form of the human element they so closely resemble, with a smooth and soft texture to maximize comfort and malleability. imaginarte says that the pendulous prosthetic intends to ‘provide those seconds of escape that we all need once in a while’ and make it ‘possible to be productive while touching your balls.’

  • Very strange needing to touch the balls. It seems a nervous tic or the beginning of a Tourette syndrome …
    Could this not lead addicts in use this artifact to seek the real object and its natural complement?…
    By the way, the complete toy could be found in a sex shop…

    Sérgio Werneck de Figueiredo says:
  • …not exactly discrete as the photo shows and unacceptable in any office environment. HR would be required to fire any person who had these hanging from their desk.

  • Agencies seem to struggle at times with their own understanding and definition of creative. They think stuff like this up, think it’s genius and go as far as taking their childish impulses to market. This idea is useless and void of all intelligent consideration. It’s sad that it was featured here.

  • I’m all set, thanks.

    Ralph says:
  • now i can’t unsee this unfortunately. and it has made me a more violent person.

    alfredo bonkers says:
  • Where can I buy the niceballs??

    Justin says:
  • This isn’t a real product that you can order although judging by the comments it seems that many peeps simply did not get the joke. I sometimes wonder if things are becoming so PC nowadays that you won’t be able to make these type of silly things in the not too distant future.

    Iker says:
  • Some grumps on the comments here. These are hilarious and should be a fixture in every office. I’m ordering some!

    MIne are nicer says:
  • love it. them. anyway.

    John says:
  • Where in the USA can I buy a pair of Nice Balls?
    If not here, where in the world?

    Joe Obermeier says:
  • I would like to know the price and where I can purchase the “Nice Balls” please.

    Misti says:
  • why stop with the balls? there are other parts that can offer much more “de-stressing” for these poor stressed out people. Is this a nerdy response to the truck balls?

    ilya says:
  • Where can I purchase Nice Balls in the United States?

    K. K. says:
  • MAN what a bunch of haters!
