Play Sculpture by Hans Henrick Ohlers

Danish artist Hans Henrick Ohlers makes lovely organic playground sculptures out of reinforced concrete over polyurethane forms.  His best known installation, the inside-outside climbable “White Tube” is at the Guldberg Town Square in the Nørrebro district of Copenhagen, and  thoughtfully features embedded fiber optics for night-time play.   Too many playgrounds neglect appropriate lighting, limiting playable time.   Hans’ solution for the tubes is durable, and enhances the playable experience.   Don’t miss his other sculptures:  pierced domes, fantasy rocks, and snail shells!
