Created by Croatian-Austrian collective Numen/For Use, String Prototype is a design for an inflatable volume containing a network of cables that can be explored similar to a jungle gym. The design group is known for their large-scale interactive environments made from tape and netting and this is their first foray into what they call “large geometric inflated objects.” Via the project site:

When the volume deflates, the ropes get loose and lay on the ground enabling compression of the installation. When the object inflates, the ropes tense to a perfect line again, strained enough to carry the weight of a human being. Bodies entrapped in 3D grid, flying in unnatural positions throughout superficial white space, resemble Dadaist collages. Impossibility of perception of scale and direction results in simultaneous feeling of immenseness and absence of space.

The project is currently in development and you can see much more of it here. (via Designboom)
