It recently convinced the international jury of the “red dot award: product design 2012”. After an evaluation process lasting several days, it received one of the coveted awards, assigned by a 30-member expert jury. Manufacturers from all over the world had submitted 4,515 designs altogether to the renowned product competition. With its high design quality, the HAGS Orbit could inspire the experts. It received the globally sought-after red dot for its fine design language in the product group “outdoor, leisure and sport” and product type playground equipment. Rotates in an angle. The Hags Orbit play unit has a fixed centre that is used to increase the speed in the joined task of trying to spin as fast as the users dare. To achieve that extra sensation of tingling, the roundabout rotates in a slight angle. The brave user leans back to increase the excitement further. The Orbit’s design inspires you to try to sit in different ways and even to stand and balance on the ring. There is a red mark on the centre top that can be used as a tachometer or in the game ”don’t end up at the red mark” when Orbit stops. The dimensions of the Orbit are so generous that many can spin together. It can be placed on playgrounds, but also as a standalone play sculpture, e.g. in a square. (www.hags.com)

Open spaces for loud and wild games

Open spaces represent an important opposite world to the domesticated, digitised, traffic-loaded everyday life of metropolitan children. In this context the Waller Sand beach park in Bremen shows how both children and the entire city population benefit from natural open spaces.
