The Brooklyn Nets home court is open for business. Here are some (fun!) facts and photos from the Barclays Center.
Design! The court is Herringbone patterned, which is a neat geometric tessellation.
“When you turn on the TV and you turn on a Celtics game and you look at that court, it’s a parquet that has become very recognizable,” says Brooklyn Nets CEO Brett Yormark. “We want this to be the same — it’s our version of the parquet.”
Savvy! The Brooklyn Nets care about you interacting with their brand on the Internet.
From BrooklynNets.com: “The area in front of the home bench is stamped with “BROOKLYNNETS.COM” to direct viewers to the team Web site; on the away side, it reads “@BROOKLYNNETS”, a reference to the official Twitter account.”
Details! More information than you’d ever want to know about wood.
From BrooklynNets.com: “It consists of 240 panels each measuring 4-feet wide, 7-feet long and 185 pounds; they took two weeks to construct, utilizing specialized milled lumber. The court takes four hours to assemble.”
