killspencer joined forces with snarkitecture to create a collector’s edition all-white indoor mini basketball kit, each individually signed and numbered. made in the united states, the product features a durable white melamine laminate backboard with a gloss white breakaway rim. a white leather net and springs finish the matching themes to emphasize the simplicity of the basketball merchandise. it also includes a grey rubber size #3 mini basketball. silver hardware attaches the basket to a wall using a cleat system assembly that installs and secures the backboard with a bracket.

this isn’t snarkitecture’s first endeavor into the basketball field. in 2014, the architecture studio completed ‘airball’, a custom arena at the herzog and de meuron designed carpark in miami, florida. the centerpiece of the installation is an all white elevated space in which visitors are invited to play ball and compete side-by-side on two fully custom basketball arcade-style shootout games.
