We’re always excited to hear that Dutch artist Florentijn Hofman (previously featured here) has unveiled a new work of oversized whimsy. Hofman’s latest creation is this awesome playground shaped like a gigantic red octopus wearing a little sailor’s cap. It’s the friendliest Kraken we’ve ever seen.
Hofman’s Kraken was designed in partnership with UAP Studio for the Vanke Group’s One City development in Yantian, Shenzhen, China. The tentacular playscape was created with the history of its location in mind, which previously housed a battleship in its harbor. However this tentacular beast only has eyes for fun times.
