This is a Sling Swingset designed by WMB Studio. “Part of the annual Winter Stations project that transforms lifeguard stations on Toronto’s Woodbine Beach, the Sling Swing was one of five selected designs and revises the idea of a relaxing summer deck chair into a wintery piece of public art. Following the competition theme of ‘warmth’, its swathes of bright orange canvas are suspended from a grid of steel poles that encompass the station and create twenty-one ‘slings’ in which people can swing, huddle or simply sit and contemplate the sea view. When unoccupied, the loops of fabric sway in the breeze to create a highly animated, vibrant weather van. ”
