Rola is the result of 2 week workshop “Expérience de la matiere” in Ensci Les Atelier, with the task of making a swing.
With my team-mate, Pierre Bourré, we chose to focused on body movements. We wanted to see how this swinging game could enable various body positions. We decided to step away from the typical playground shapes and materials, and instead, to create something standing between workout equipment and raw mechanical piece.
Playing with its balance, one can place his body whether inside or on top of the swing, going from a relaxing position to a fitness exercise, and, everything in between, to acrobatic dances and challenges.
