flex-ball

Discipline: Professional Concept

A creative playing facility in which children create new spaces with flexible shapes. The design is inspired by puzzle and maze systems. It encourages children to assemble parts for the puzzle, to create new spaces and to later escape from the maze. The external shape changes with the new inner spaces that can be created depending on how the children decide to play. The ever-evolving ball-like exterior and its vivid orange color make the flex-ball work as an environmental sculpture as well.
Safe and environmentally friendly materials were used for durability. Fun and transitional materials create an aesthetic design.
