- Pebbles is a fitness playground based on a circuit training for families. At every station there is an exercise for the parent with the child. The child climbs, jumps, swings, seesaws and turns. It has the possibility to go wild but also to calm down. The parent does different kind of exercises for warm up, balancing, and works out for all the big muscle groups. They spend together quality time in action on the fresh air.
Final project at the University of Duisburg - Essen. 2008
- The design of the fitness playground is characterized by simplicity and swing. It has been developed as an entire unit. Inspired by the Japanese Zen garden, where clean lines and surfaces form together a holistic picture. The round shapes reflect an intimacy and create a relaxed atmosphere. The development of the environment was included in the design process.
- All the devices were designed according to safety guidelines for playgrounds. Ergonomics as well as the choice of material ensured a significant role in the creative decisions during the development. The clear shapes don´t hide anything, the mechanism is visible and provides a high usability. The clear coloring guides the parent and the child where to take place.
