The Light Ball is clearly made with diehard basketball fans in mind. Who else would want such a blatant home decor tribute in their home? Granted, it is better than some of the other tackier paraphernalia out there such as posters, playing cards, bobble heads and more. Although far from subtle, there is also a minimalist aesthetic about the Light Ball that will appeal to many.
Designed by Andrey Privalov, a product designer hailing from Kharkov, Ukraine, the Light Ball essentially revolves around a swish shot. Complete with rim and net, the 'basketball' acts as the light source itself. Resting in the net, the who fixture is meant to be mounted on the wall, as though it were a real mini indoor basketball hoop. It is available in different colors.
