The Hanging Pod is a swaying shelter and wildly popular among children. The two Hanging Pods invite swaying meetings for all. The constant swaying adds to the fun factor – and it trains social-emotional skills such as turn-taking and empathy.
The Rollers create a different, tactile stimulation for all as a ground-level accessible meeting point.
The visual dichroic plates create an amazing color pattern which reflects in the surroundings, adding to children’s sense of wonder and causal thinking.
The gently moving, turfed membrane meeting point adds a tactile destination from which children can feel the movements of the net climbers around them.
The circular membrane meeting point sways gently with the movements of the climbing children above. This makes it a fun and interesting point for a break for all, at ground level.
The Optic Panels have moiré & dichroic visual effects when turned and moved. This fosters a sense of wonder that stimulates thinking skills.
The Dragon Scale membrane invites all ages and abilities for a colorful, tactile break. The membrane is dispersed in the nets above and gently sways by the movements of the climbers.
The Drawing Wall offers a tactile and versatile game of creating patterns and signals. The possibility of leaving a mark stimulates children’s creativity and cooperation.
The Sensory Dome is a five-legged dome, filled with exciting and stimulating sensory play activities.
It’s designed with a large quantity and variety of ground level activities and a central funnel net leading to the upper climbing net and all the way up to the top membrane that is padded with artificial grass.
Amongst the activities are rollers attached to the netting. These rollers can be used horizontally, to sit or lie on, and roll over, stimulating body pressure, or they can be mounted vertically and used as a drawing wall for creating pixilated patterns.
The Sensory Dome also includes hanging pods and a great number of small and large movable optical plates with the moiré pattern effects or the dichroic color-changing effect, allowing children to explore and experiment with light, reflection, and shadows.
