Turning themes, ideas and stories into playgrounds
KOMPAN Design Studio
For more than a decade, we have built tailor-made and highly unique playgrounds that WOW children and adults to come and play. The playgrounds come in all kinds of themes and can be moulded and thematised to your local area and community, or to fit a specific environment. Always loaded with the play activities we have developed over half a century. The play structures are made of highly durable and vandalism-resistant materials that make them last for decades to come. Also, they are safe and certifiable like all products we have built over the past 50 years.
Loaded with play activities
The fireman’s pole provides a thrilling opportunity encouraging risk-taking and turn-taking. Coordination is supported when going down, and arm and core muscles are trained.
Wind beneath the wings
The swings are thrilling favourites that train children’s sense of balance, coordination and spatial awareness.
The climbing access points to the plane and to the helicopter train children’s cross-coordination. The cross-modal movement stimulates the cooperation of the right and left part of the brain, fundamental for skills such as reading.
Time to relax
The hammock offers a place to rest and retract to.
A cozy place to meet
The manipulative details at ground level attract children and allow for more users to take part in play. The tic-tac-toe panel offers a place to be together, stimulating communication and turn-taking skills. It trains children’s understanding of rules and strategic thinking.
This is your captain speaking ...
The talk tubes encourage communication and social interaction. They evoke curiosity and stimulate an understanding of cause and effect.
