Available as a limited edition, the collaborative project transforms our signature luxe black colorway and incorporates the crisp white aesthetic that SNARKITECTURE is widely recognized for.
“When I first met Spencer and visited the workshop in LA, I felt a natural connection to what was happening in that space—design and innovation. SNARKITECTURE and KILLSPENCER® are both interested in these areas, and the mini basketball kit felt like the right product collaboration. The kit is an invitation for all to revisit a playful childhood memory,” said Alex Mustonen, co-founder of SNARKITECTURE.
Spencer Nikosey, owner of KILLSPENCER® added, “I’ve had a lot of respect and admiration for SNARKITECTURE for many years. Their process and approach is inspiring and iconic. We are always striving to take our work to the next level and it is an honor to collaborate with like-minded creators that are at the forefront of modern artistry and design.”
Snarkitecture was co-founded by Alex Mustonen and Daniel Arsham in 2008. The New York-based practice explores the disciplinary boundaries between art and architecture. The name is drawn from Lewis Carroll’s The Hunting of The Snark, a poem describing an “impossible voyage of an improbable crew to find an inconceivable creature.” Snarkitecture’s approach focuses on viewer experience, encouraging interaction with and exploration of the surrounding environment. From permanent architectural-scale projects to functional objects, the studio manipulates and reinterprets existing materials, structures and programs to make architecture perform the unexpected.
