Proludic is really proud to have recently installed a new play area for the Daisy Chain Project in Stockton.
Daisy Chain is a unique charity that addresses the needs of children on the autism spectrum and their families. The £120,000 development was put in place to provide an opportunity for families to experience a genuine sense of adventure within a safe environment.
A member of Proludic staff who has a brother with autism played a leading role in shaping the overall design concept which we used. She spoke to us about her brother’s love of numbers, list-making and patterns, which provided us with that wonderful light bulb moment – which is why the design resembles a pocket watch!
We have used this concept to influence the form and content throughout the space – from the futuristic Nautilus vessel to the chunky cog surface details. The design offers a layered, playful and exciting play experience for children at The Daisy Chain Project.
We have also used our inclusive range of products throughout which have been expertly designed to deal with a range of impairments including visual, hearing, learning, or motor.
“We were delighted to be given the opportunity to design a truly bespoke and inclusive play area for the Daisy Chain play area project. We thoroughly enjoyed illustrating the client’s vision knowing that it would provide a stimulating, educational and sensory but fun-packed playscape for the many children that visit the Daisy Chain facility”.
