ANEBY, Sweden, October 23, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

The HAGS Orbit roundabout awarded with important design prize.

The Orbit - a robust and stylish roundabout from HAGS - beat thousands of international products and wowed a panel of design experts in Essen, Germany, to win "red dot award: product design 2012" in the product group "outdoor, leisure and sport" and product type playground equipment. The red dot award is an internationally recognised quality label for outstanding design achievement and one of the world's most sought-after seals of design quality.

Rotates in an angle.

The HAGS Orbit play unit has a fixed centre that is used to increase the speed in the joined task of trying to spin as fast as the users dare.  

To achieve that extra sensation of tingling, the roundabout rotates in a slight angle. The brave user leans back to increase the excitement further. The Orbit's design inspires you to try to sit in different ways and even to stand and balance on the ring. There is a red mark on the centre top that can be used as a tachometer or in the game "don't end up at the red mark" when Orbit stops.

The dimensions of the Orbit are so generous that many can spin together. It can be placed on playgrounds, but also as a standalone play sculpture, e.g. in a square.
