TIME Magazine’s youth division, TIME for Kids, has recently named the 50 Coolest Places in the world. The eclectic list which was compiled by young readers, includes Notre Dame Cathedral, the Apollo Space Center and two KOMPAN playgrounds. The credentials for being considered were based on quality, originality, sustainability, accessibility and, most of all, fun.
Nestled beside two of Seattle’s most iconic structures, the Space Needle and the Museum of Pop Culture, this playground was designed to complement the surroundings while stimulating the sense of sight and sound.
In cooperation with KOMPAN and local partners Highwire, the Artists at Play creative group introduced music into play, using the Corocord Sky Walk and the Spacenet as dominant features when they converted an area of bare asphalt into a visually striking interactive playground.
In Tulsa, Oklahoma, the Gathering Place is a massive 100 acre park built from the vision of transforming the city starting with an inclusive and natural space. Apart from making the world’s coolest list, the park was also named in the top ten of new attractions by the readers of USA Today.
KOMPAN’s contribution includes the Sky cabins and another thrilling COROCORD Sky Walk. From high above the trees, adventurers of all ages get a birds-eye view of the park and the Arkansas River.
The Design Studio is where customer’s ideas and whims are brought to life. Working with ever-changing and innovative features, the design team creates playground centerpieces that reflect the unique environment around them. They turn adventure into an art form and challenges into play.
