Epic Inflatable Jungle Gym
on 22 February 2014
Situated in the Viennese countryside, a massive string-supported jungle gym balances geometric sculpture with the nostalgia for childhood play-spaces. From Croatian-Austrian design studio Numen/For Use, "String Prototype" is still in development but entirely usable, with thin parallel ropes building an interior climbing grid. The structure can support multiple people at once, clawing and balancing their way along within a superficial white space that actually manages to distort the perception of internal scale.
