Making a Splash | Splinter Works

by | Jan 9, 2020 | #design

Following our featured project from UK design studio Splinter Works in last month’s Designer, here’s another unique creation from these masters of material.

This outdoor pool commission is as much a work of art as it is a slide, with its flowing form contrasting against its natural green backdrop.

The sculptural piece – made from marine-grade stainless steel – has been engineered so that it is free of visible structural armature, fixtures and fittings.

This is made possible with the use of an innovative double-skinned technique which hides the support structure inside.

Water is released in a series of outlets that act to cool the sliding surface in the sun to make it slippery, while water also flows through the handrails to ensure they remain cool to the touch.
