FUNIMAL FOREST
PLAYGROUND DESIGN
Renon / 2017 - 2018
The Funimal Forest hiking trail leads through forests and meadows passing by eight unique stations, each of them introducing a wild animal (fox, hedgehog, butterfly, frog, woodpecker, squirrel, tawny owl, hare) living in the middle-european forests. Each of these colored figures comes up with an activity associated to its behavior and character, like swinging with Bella, the butterfly, rocking with Frankie, the frog or climbing with Walter, the woodpecker.
The sculptures are made of hand-painted wooden panels. Their specific optical and tactile attraction for young and old alike is given through their graphic design, the textual introduction of each character and the games manufactured from steel, wood and brass.
The thoughtful use of materials and crafting skills underlines the importance of the surrounding landscape as a delicate context enhancing a conscious and responsible attitude towards nature.
