Jay Z to Turn Luxury Boxes at Barclays Center into a Rap Video Set
The Nets really should be more concerned about getting Dwight Howard or they won’t have to worry about their luxury boxes, you know why?
Because no one will be in them.
Unless there are some die hard Kris Humphries fans out there.
Here is what Jigga has in mind.
Forks need to be heavy, [Jay] told his small audience. …. Forks, Jay-Z said, need to have substance. A plastic fork? Please. Even stainless steel was out of the question.
he Nets are set to begin marketing 11 luxury suites that will be known as “The Vault at Barclays Center,” a small, high-end space on the event level of the arena. Yes, Jay-Z chose the forks—in addition to offering his input on the Champagne ($300 bottles of Armand de Brignac), the layout (asymmetrical) and much of the décor (lots of black and shimmering metallics).
The Vault was conceived as a collection of uber-suites, part club scene and part Kasbah, replete with a VIP entrance framed by a 15-foot sheer curtain. The first tenant? Jay-Z himself.
Part of the aesthetic, Sharples said, was based on the metal bottles of Armand de Brignac, which is sponsoring a communal 2,400-square-foot bar at the center of the space.
