Check out this in amazing floating playground by Wibit Sports. The "Sports Park 60" uses three electric pumps to inflate slides, bridges, a trampoline, a swing, a mini pond and more in just three hours. The piece, which currently has no set price tag, would make the perfect addition to any summer camp or private lake.
iDesign talked to Wibit marketing manager Ralf Rogalewski about the how the company's design method helped shape this impressive product.
Jacob Kleinman: What was the inspiration for the piece?
Ralf Rogalewski: As both founders have a sportive background, the thought for developing modular inflatable water sports products was to bring all kind of playground stuff onto the water inspiring people in doing more sports. As today's Nintendo's, Wii's and Computer's avoid especially kids establishing motorical skills as well as soft skills like teamwork, fair play and social interaction, Wibit's products give them a good possibility to develop them whilst having fun and action.
JK: How do Sports Park 60 represent the company's style and vision?
RR: We think that our vision is to make people happy. Our design is innovative due to its modularity, and the colors that we use speak for its quality.
All Wibit products comply with state of the art safety standards recognized the world over. All materials, test methods, consumer information, and specific safety requirements comply with European Norm: EN 15649. These have been tested by the German TUV- world-renowned safety testers of industry materials since 1876. This can be seen in the installation of the parks and products.
JK: How are the floating parks made?
RR: The parks are made of extra strong PVC material (the same stuff used for lorries or zodiacs) and stainless steel parts designed especially for commercial use in all bodies of water and climates.
Wibit products are modular and can be connected with any other Wibit product. Wibit+ (or "stand alone") products are not modular but some (I.e. Roller) can be attached to the Bouncer.
