In full swing

Nicework presents to you, Tessa! She loves spending time online, so finding something to write about is second nature to her (or so it seems)


21 Balançoires (21 Swings), a project recently done by a team of Montreal designers will bring some whimsy to your week.

Canadian design collective, Daily Tous Les Jours, has placed an interactive installation of musical swings alongside a Montréal city street — next to a bus stop. A fresh look on the idea of cooperation, the swings play a tune when pedestrians move in unison rather than independently.The result is a giant instrument made of 21 musical swings; each swing in motion triggers different notes, all the swings together compose a piece, the sounds of which emerge only from cooperation.

This project shows how design can be used to encourage ownership of the public space, bringing together community and creating a place for playing and hanging out in the middle of the city.
