Vincent Le Thuy (founder of the magazine Sole Collector), brand Pigalle helped by Nike and creative minds working at Ill Studio have recently launched a project of renovation for the basketball court Duperré in Pigalle (Paris). Opened on the 1st July, this court features vivid colors and squares that appear like a breathe in the middle of the two concrete buildings that overhang it. The ground was designed from a “recycled rubber gum that absorbs the ball’s noise” in order to solve the problems of noises that threatened this court to close last year.

Playground Duperré, 22 rue Duperré 75009. Métro Pigalle. 10am-8pm in summer.
