playLAND pavilions by LIKEarchitects, Portugal

Created for ‘O Mundo ao Contrário’, which means ‘The World Upside-Down’, a week-long event that transformed the quiet village in the north of Portugal into a playground for hundreds of children, featuring street theatre, concerts, circus, and installations, playLAND is a off-the-shelf installation, built with the help of local volunteers and formalized into three different moments: an informal stage, where different shows for children could be seen; a silo-shaped tower, that kids could enter and play in; and a small tunnel pavilion, for children to cross and run around. Being a child object, designed for children to play quietly in the sea or in the pool, the beach float is naturally a colorful and very appealing object.

The device is a part of a campaign around Ikea's PS at Home project, aimed at getting buyers to share images of their furniture on the chain's website. Called Knappa, the camera will not be sold but rather given away to consumers in selected stores around the world. It was created by a Swedish designer Jesper Kouthoofd, runs on two AA batteries, and connects to a computer with help of a swing-out USB connector. It is Ikea's most recent step towards consumer electronics after the retailer developed a home theatre line, but the firm's spokesperson told the BBC that it was not "a move into selling any digital equipment".
