One of the most prominent features of the University of Oregon’s Matthew Knight Arena is Kilkenny Floor which was designed by Tinker Hatfield, Nike’s VP of Creative Design and named after former Oregon Athletic Director Pat Kilkenny. Called “Deep in the Woods”, the floor’s design gives the impression of being lost in a Pacific Northwest forest, gazing towards the sky. The charge for Hatfield was to design something that echoed the “Tall Firs” nickname of the 1938-39 Oregon Ducks men’s basketball team, winners of the inaugural NCAA basketball championship as well as providing an iconic television presence for the University of Oregon. What do you think of the floor’s design. Do you think it provides the Ducks with a home court advantage?
