Iconic Design
The black and white ball features Marcel Wanders studio’s iconic Monster graphics; six pairs of eyes, each with a different expression, that seems to follow every passer-by.

Make a Statement at Home…
Shoot some hoops or put it on display in your living room. This eye-catching black and white basketball comes with a display holder, so it can take a prominent place in your home. But this design isn’t just decor. With the Monster Basketball, you can make a statement at home or on the basketball court!

…and on the Basketball Court
The Monster Basketball is created in collaboration with Spalding, an innovative icon in the sports world since 1876. This means the ball is not only made for decorating your home but begs to be used as well. Feel like shooting some hoops? Take the ball with you to the basketball court. No matter if it’s indoors or outdoors, the basketball is made from rubber so it can handle tough concrete without a hitch. The Monster Basketball ships inflated so you can enjoy a game straight away.
