Pigalle Duperré

Extra
Pigalle Duperre

French fashion brand Pigalle and creative agency Ill-Studio have collaborated on a multicoloured basketball court between a row of houses on Rue Duperré in Paris.

The installation – titled Pigalle Duperré – features panels of blue, white, red and yellow in geometric shapes inspired by the 1930s artwork Sportsmen by Russian artist Kazimir Malevich.

The bold makeover is a striking contrast to the traditional brick surroundings and creates an optical illusion due to the combination of block shapes and curved, enclosing walls. Made from panels of brightly coloured rubber usually seen in children's playgrounds, the space is a fun and functional new addition to the area.

Visual trickery and playful optical illusions are becoming increasingly apparent in architecture. For more inspiration, see our Colour Spectrum A/W 16-17 rationale Optical.
