The Optic Panels have visual moiré effects when turned and moved. This fosters a sense of wonder that stimulates thinking skills.
The interconnected nets reflect the movements of all climbers. This adds thrill and fun to climbing. It also trains children’s muscles and important motor skills such as cross-coordination.
The speedy ride down the tall tube slide is immensely thrilling. It develops children’s spatial awareness, which helps them judge distances for instance in traffic.
The visual dichroic panels create an amazing colour change on the outside and a wondrous meeting point on the inside, adding to children’s – and adults’ – curiosity and sense of wonder.
The Hanging Pod is a swaying shelter and hugely attractive for children. Additionally, it trains social-emotional skills such as empathy.
The Rollers create a different, tactile stimulation to the horizontal meeting point.
The SkyTwister is a spectacular, dynamic and ever-changing play tower.
The top part of the tower is made from transparent dichroic polycarbonate that changes and reflects different colours depending on the viewers angle, the sunlight, the time of day, and the time of the year.
The colour changing experience is different from the inside of the tower, as here the colours look different from the outside view. Looking through the coloured polycarbonate panels, the surroundings reflect in all the colours of the rainbow.
The SkyTwister holds movable Optic Panels with moiré patterns, and a Hanging Pod that can sway and turn following the movements of the other children climbing the net of the structure. The tower is modular, and with printed polycarbonate plates the SkyTwister can be customised to fit any request.

"The bended and tilted posts give the illusion that the SkyTwister is turning and twisting towards the sky. This feeling is enhanced by the extended nets that follows the shape, and twists towards the centre of the tower, like a vortex."
