Loaded with innovative physical and sensory play
Striking and exhilarating, even from a distance, the SkyTwister’s five long sweeping legs give the impression of movement and grace. Walk around it and experience how the panels react to the different times of day and changing weather. Curious?
A varied range of ground level, accessible, tactile and physical play activities increase play options for all. This example is the dragon scales hangout.
The ropes are entwined in such a way as to always make every climbing experience slightly different, and training proprioception, coordination and muscle power in the discovery process.
From the top of the SkyTwister, the only thing seperating the children from the world below is the colourful glass. Looking out they will see the world in all the colours of the rainbow.

Dichroic top panels or graphical print on transparent panels as shown here together with different color of posts, ropes and membranes.
The challenging climbing net twists like a vortex all the way to the top, and it can be extended outside the tower too.
Activate the senses through sensory play with dragon scales or the rollers shown here on the picture.
Panels with moiré effect inspire children to wonder. The changing patterns capture their attention and develop logical thinking.
The Hangout Pod is a cool place to meet, relax and train balance, as bounces and sways.
The top of the Sensory SkyTwister has colored dichroic panels. Dichroic panels are multi-colored and change appearance depending on the environment, where you stand the direction where the light is coming from. The dichroic filter in the panels selectively stream a range of light colors while reflecting other colors, giving a wondrous rainbow effect.
While the colors of the rainbow are created and reflected, children are inspired to think about how this is possible, helping to develop critical thinking and reasoning skills. The dichroic filter adds color, but the surface is still transparent, and that makes for a lot of fun – suddenly your friends and parents below change color through the sky-high lens from the top of the tower.
Children are attracted to and amused by the rainbow effects, when they look at the world through the coloured glass from the inside, and when they discover the fun colour reflections on the outside. It evokes a sense of wonder.
