What you can expect from KOMPAN
KOMPAN’s purpose is to help our customers to healthier and happier communities. So we strive hard to deliver the best play and fitness solutions. Outstanding performance on all parameters.
Most Beautiful and Timeless Play and Fitness Designs
KOMPAN was born from art. Half a century ago, sculptor Tom Lindhardt observed children playing on his artistic creations. Tom turned the process full circle to allow playgrounds to become beautiful and timeless, like objects of art. Since then the KOMPAN symbol, the little Homo Ludens figure, has become the iconic mark of inventive quality that says, ‘this is the art of playing.'
Most Playful and Developing Play Designs
Children are like snowflakes, externally similar yet uniquely different. With KOMPAN design the many diverse elements demanded by children like the thrills of speed, heights, and space, as well as the importance of role-play and comradeship, are built into every module. The playgrounds themselves are like snowflakes, clearly recognisable, but always different. Our aim is threefold: to create a WOW reaction that stimulates a desire to STAY and, through play DEVELOP physically and mentally.
Outdoor Fitness that actually makes an Impact
Exercise and fresh air, natural partners, and the universal formula for feeling good. Today we are aware of the positive results of physical exertion. Our 21st-century lifestyles demand it, but to get it right takes a scientific approach to what to do and how to do it. This is where design meets reality.
We collaborate with sports physiologists and physiotherapists as well as universities and sports researchers to make sure we deliver perfect and impactful outdoor equipment.
We know that our customers are different and want something different from their playground or fitness space: aesthetics, thematization, age groups, number of children to be able to play at the same time, etc. A theme park may want to make a WOW playground in order to attract children. A school may want a very physical playground in which the children burn energy in order to be able to concentrate during lessons. So our architects, landscape architects, and designers tailor solutions to you, your users, your environments, and your wants.
Most Unique Landmarks by KOMPAN Design Studio
When is a playground not just a playground? When it is one of a kind.
KOMPAN’s Design Studio in Berlin creates built-from-scratch playgrounds and fitness areas that are tailored to say something about the community they serve. They are landmarks, as distinctive as a gift of nature or an architectural gem. From Australia to France, from Germany to Singapore, these are unique statements from communities wishing to stand out, ready to make their mark.
Most Universal Designs that Include Everybody
Play is the most magical thing in the life of a child, all children. Regardless of physical or mental ability, play is for all. There can be no cordoned-off protective areas. Inclusive play is at the very core of everything we aim for. Play without boundaries where children are so engaged that they’re unaware of each other’s personal situation. Universal design means a stigma-free playground for everyone.
Your Preferred Partner from Idea to Play
Building a playground may sound as easy as playing, but can be very complicated. We are ready to take the burden off your shoulder and be your partner in the process. We help you find the best products and best layout for you, your users, and your site. We make sure that the new site is a safe and lovely place to spend hours and hours. We make sure that everything gets to the site on time, clearing the site, digging out for foundations, installing products, laying the safe-surfacing, and putting paths, fences, benches, etc.
Highest Quality Materials
Playgrounds will have to stand the wear and tear of weather and heavy usage. A KOMPAN site looks great for decades to come and requires little to take care of. Because only that way will users get as many hours of joy as possible. Therefore, we use the highest quality materials that look inviting for decades to come and require the least amount of maintenance. This is also why our warranties are best in class. Over time that is the best and most economical for everybody.
We continously work to reduce our usage of raw materials by replacing them and instead using recycled materials that emit fewer carbon emission. We work with a two-way approach: Made Green and Born Green.
