Founded by Berlin Architect, Conrad Roland, Corocord’s architectural rope play solutions are found in playgrounds all over the world. The inventor of the SpaceNet, Roland went onto build the largest Four Mast Space Net in the world for the international Garden Exhibition in Dusseldorf.

The Robinia Fox
The Robinia Fox19.07.2022

Located in Marion Country, South Carolina, a Fox play sculpture honours the military history of the area and a much-loved Senator. What started as a vision was transformed into reality – a sculpture that encapsulates the communities’ values and teaches future generations about the heritage of the area. Over the past two years, the community, sponsors and supporters have worked together to turn this dream into a reality. KOMPAN USA worked alongside the KOMPAN Design Studio to create Faith the Fox. From initial sketch, right through to reality, the focus was to create a bespoke customed-designed playground sculpture that brought local families and the community together.
