Commuter Slide at Dutch Railway’s Overvecht Station!

Odd and quirky. That’s how I define this art installation at Dutch railway station Overvecht Station. It’s a slide. It’s a slide for commuters. It’s a slide for adults. It’s a fun addition to an area that’s so business and professionally oriented. Though it’s weak as “art” it’s makes up for it in spirit.

It’s simple and strait to the point. “Would you like to add a little fun to your day?” it says. Or “Care for a smile?” The more I thought about it, the more I wanted more business or “adult” spaces to have little reminders to us all that life doesn’t always have to be so serious.

Officially called a “transfer accelerator,” the slide was installed in this underutilized area as part of HIK Ontwerpers ongoing urban installations series. -Huffington Post

The slide is also said to play music from Bach during the evening… which adds a nice little surreal moment to getting home after an evening drinking we thing you’ll agree.

So crazy Dutch Design firm HIK Ontwerpers, Give Us Art! salutes you for giving grown ups some fun too!
