The Fun Rings are part of the Play Ribbons series that the office has developed and prototyped during a long process of research and development of play routes, playful circuits of events, for users of different ages and in different stages of physical & mental development. The Fun Rings encourage playful learning in a safe but challenging learning environment, fostering the development of physical, social, communicative and collaborative skills.
“Playful learning” has been found to be very effective because apart from promoting a state of low anxiety, it provides opportunities for completely new experiences and active engagement.
In order to maximize learning outcomes, this type of learning must bear five characteristics: joyful, meaningful, actively engaging, iterative and socially interactive, all found to facilitate the development and activation of interconnected brain processes in growing and support their capacity to learn.
The Music Ring has been designed to become a playful learning environment for youngsters ranging from 14 to 24 years old. We call this group “The Social Nerds”. This is the stage where they are not kids anymore, they don’t want to play in the traditional way. For them playing has other meaning related with music, social media, and some activities where they can manifest their new interests. Hence, we have called this ribbon the Music Ring.
Nowadays, youngsters are the most important category for marketing strategy targets. The space should be eye-catching, with interesting & cool activities, selfie opportunities and musical purposes.
The Music Ring contains sophisticated music games such as a KTV box and giant headphones for playing songs and taking selfies. Also, in that same line it has a pipe phone to play the telephone game. On the other hand, it is also equipped with a 2-level slide, swings, a climbing structure and a boxing sack.
The main inner structure is stainless steel frames and the finishing material is made with stainless steel sheets with a layer of fluorocarbon paint. Some of the features and equipment on top are done with fiberglass. This Fun Ring reaches a maximum height of 4420 mm.
The colors, play features and details of this project can be customized depending on the needs of the client and conditions of the site. The modifications will be done upon request.
