Social distancing will always be part of what everyone considers today as normal. Even if governments ease lockdown restrictions, parents will always teach their children to practice social distancing not until a vaccine comes in. But if there are playgrounds created with the current pandemic in mid, this mindset will definitely change.
Well, there’s good news as two German designers were able to create a playground that is safe for children during the pandemic. According to Business Insider, Claudio Rimmele and Martin Binder created the Rimbin, a playground that allows children to practice social distancing while having fun with friends and other kids.
Coming from the combination of the two creators surname, Rimbin is also the combination of rim and bin, with the rim to mean edge and the bin to mean container. Basically, the playground is all about giving each child a space of their own while playing with someone else. Each platform, which is based on the water lily’s shape, will provide enough space for each child to follow the social distancing protocols as well as allow parents to supervise their children at a distance.
The Rimbin’s design is very promising as it provides an alternative for children to have fun despite strict protocols due to the pandemic. Children’s physical activities are important to help them grow. Even doctors recommend for children to have at least 60 minutes of free play to help them develop their physical, social, and cognitive abilities.
For indoor playgrounds looking for a design that integrates social distancing, the Rimbin is a wonderful inspiration to look at.
