Kompan wins design award for its innovative playgrounds

KOMPAN, a company that is dedicated to creating child-focused play equipment has been recognised by the Australian International Design Awards Yearbook 2011 winning the '2011 Award of the Year'.

The award recognises the KOMPAN playgrounds as advanced, setting a new standard for play grounds around the world by combining exciting electronic games with challenging outdoor play equipment.

From the judges:

'With its day-night versatility, low running costs, intuitive layout and high quality, this will appeal to children and adults alike. The combination of electronic games with physical play equipment was a stroke of genius. In an age where childhood obesity is an epidemic, this is where design thinking can make a real difference.'
