Life Science: IONiX is a visual representation of the science of life.

Each shape and pattern represents design elements found in DNA.

Shadow Play: Vibrant, translucent panels capture sunlight and cast vivid, colourful shadows below. As children travel up, down, in and around the structure, the seven colours of the rainbow are dispersed throughout the play area, transforming an ordinary play surface into an extraordinary play activity that promotes sensory integration.
