Anyone who has the chance to venture inside this String Prototype will have great fun navigating through the complex arrangement of blue lines. Created by Croatian-Austrian industrial design group Numen/For Use, the inflatable concept is like a large jungle gym for kids and adults alike.
The installation consists of a geometric configuration of ropes that are secured to the sides of the structure. When the square is inflated, the ropes pull tightly across the interior space and create a grid through which visitors can climb, swing, and play. Surrounded completely by white walls, climbers will find that concepts of perspective become confusing and disorienting.
Numen/For Use explains, "Bodies entrapped in a 3D grid and flying in unnatural positions throughout superficial white space resemble Dadaist collages. Impossibility of perception of scale and direction results in simultaneous feelings of immenseness and absence of space."
