All those who attended the 2012 Archstoyanie arts and music festival in Russia had a chance to enjoy a record-breaking 170 ft long trampoline, installed in the midst of the woods. The “Fast track” trampoline was designed by Maarja Kask, Karli Luik and Ralf Lõoke from Estonia-based Salto design agency. Even though it sounds bizarre, the trampoline doesn’t look at all odd in the Nikola-Lenivets park, which is known for hosting modern art installations.
“’Fast track’ is a integral part of park infrastructure, it is a road and an installation at the same time. It challenges the concept of infrastructure that only focuses on technical and functional aspects and tends to be ignorant to its surroundings. “Fast track” is an attempt to create intelligent infrastructure that is emotional and corresponds to the local context. It gives the user a different experience of moving and perceiving the environment,” – explain the designers.
