Launching the Multicoloured Monster Basketball, a limited edition collectible that is a joyous celebration of life, colour, and the vibrant spirit that Marcel Wanders brings to his designs. This collectible is the latest in a series of collaborations between Moooi and Spalding, following the iconic black (2021) and playful pink (2023) editions. Each iteration of the Monster Basketball is a fusion of art and sport, crafted to delight and inspire.

Drawing inspiration from the spectrum of human emotions, the Monster Basketball Multicoloured features a dazzling array of hues—green, yellow, orange, red, purple, magenta and two shades of blue. These colours symbolize joy, celebration, and love, infusing every game with a sense of exuberance and energy. The Monster graphics, with their watchful eyes, add a layer of whimsy and intrigue, creating a dynamic interplay between colour and design.

"The Monster Basketball Multicoloured infuses the game with a burst of vibrant energy, capturing the joy and passion of life. It stands as a symbol of boundless creativity and play, inspiring us to embrace the artistry in every moment, whether on the court or within our homes." – Marcel Wanders

Marcel Wanders envisioned this collectible as more than just a basketball. It's a piece of art that embodies the playful spirit of Moooi and the high-performance standards of Spalding. The multicoloured edition represents a world where art and functionality coexist, where a basketball can be both a tool for sport and a centerpiece for a design-conscious home.

The round display holder included with the ball ensures it can be prominently showcased, making it a conversation starter whether on the court or in the living room. The Monster Basketball Multicoloured is a testament to the creativity and craftsmanship of its creators, a collectible that brings joy and a burst of colour to every space it inhabits.
