20 Sweet Swirling Slides

From Playground Apartments to Recycled Parts Chairs

A swirling slide makes everything better (that is common knowledge). Adding a bit of childhood and fun into something ensures it has an extra level of intrigue, which can go a long way.

Many architects have chosen to ditch the stairs and replace it with an epic slide instead. The Technische Universitat in Germany decided to give students a wild ride by installing two giant slides in one of its buildings; students were thrilled when they could slide to class instead of walk. Some of the biggest companies on the planet, including Google, have added slides to their offices to help workers relax and have a bit of fun. Slides have also been added to public places such as subway stations.

A swirling slide is a great morale booster and reminds people that play is just as important as work.
