An Unstable Playground Set That Challenges Kids to Find Balance

Unlike the typical seesaws, swing sets and monkey bars seen on playgrounds, Capucine Diancourt’s set of Loose Play structures remain unfixed from the ground, challenging youngsters to find their balance. The French designer created the playground set as an exploration into the way shapes and colors can bend the way we interact with the physical world, relying on instability uncommon colors to provide children with more freedom and spontaneity. Speaking to Dezeen, she explains: “Sometimes it’s not realistic, but that’s also how you can picture new shapes and new interactions and that’s what I was interested in.”
