Nicolas El Kadiri – Jim
Diploma project with Stéphane Halmaï-Voisard, Christian Spiess, Maddalena Casadei
With the rise of street workout, appropriating urban infrastructure to do body toning exercises is becoming increasingly common. “Jim” is a street furniture project that seeks to incorporate training equipment within the urban landscape in a more fluid manner than outdoor gymnastic and callisthenic parks and whose use remains open to all. The very rationalised shape is designed to enable a certain number of poly-articular movements thanks to the steel tube grips on each side and two platform levels made of ash wood, while providing multiple seating positions.
