#017 – Slope

Melody Construct

Large Musical Assembly Game: Consisting of a lengthy base structure crafted from wood and stainless steel, designed for the arrangement of modules featuring calibrated tubes and interval parts. A group of participants can follow a straightforward scoring system based on a familiar musical piece or create their own musical arrangements. Upon completion, a ball rolls down the resulting slope, playing the composed opus. Additional modules provide ample possibilities for diverse assemblies and various musical combinations. The setup can be rapidly disassembled and reconfigured at the installation site. Primarily intended for indoor use, while outdoor settings are suitable for one-time events rather than prolonged installations. Ideally suited for museums and supervised environments.

#019 – Marimba

Chromatic taper​

Spatial Musical Climbing Structure: A spiral, tapered helix made of stainless steel, featuring a surrounding climbing net and a central beam that enables users to sit together and generate random chromatic sounds through a sensor and audio system.

The entire process took about 18 months and encompassed an extensive journey of comprehensive fountain design. This included meticulous planning of the concrete structures for the water system room and an underground service tunnel, as well as coordinating and supervising the installation and construction phases on-site.


Additionally, the fountain sculpture was managed under a turnkey contract by our studio. It was designed, fabricated, and installed with the assistance of subcontractors.
The successful execution of the project was achieved through collaboration with the infrastructure contractor, Galnor Building and Development, as well as Gal Hadar, a high-quality factory specializing in intricate stainless steel work. Structural engineers Yacov Livni and Gidon Krantz played a vital role in the project’s realization.


Rishon le Zion, Israel

A stainless steel fountain comprising 80 nozzles and a central body, with both the structure and water conduit integrated.
The planning process involved high-resolution details and the creation of suitable templates and accessories to achieve the evolving shape.
The fabrication was carried out by Gal Hadar, a quality factory specializing in intricate stainless steel works.

Music Square Jerusalem

A bronze fountain structure installed in the interstitial space between buildings. Adjacent to the fountain, there are cafes and an open-air stage for music performances.
The production process encompassed a blend of traditional and innovative techniques. The structure was initially designed and 3D-printed. The printed polymer components were compatible with the conventional lost-wax method, where bronze was cast into ceramic molds. Following welding and assembly, a distinctive outdoor patina was applied.

Letters Conveyor

An assembly exhibit designed for dynamic teamwork. Each participant assumes a role, and activities unfold autonomously without guidance. Some children construct words along the conveyor belt, while others gather letters and assist in loading the belt. Counselors are also involved in facilitating the experience.

Tower of Babel

An interactive exhibit that encourages group participation. Users collaborate to assemble a three-dimensional puzzle using words from various languages.


A carousel exhibit designed for four participants, fostering cooperative play and role rotation. At the center, a screen connected to a stationary table facilitates timed role changes among participants. The surrounding structure rotates, enabling positional shifts.

Catch-up letters

An interactive game that enables children to catch letters in a system guided by a computer surveillance camera and a projector.

Zelango machine

A game on both sides of a wall, which allows two participants to send each other messages in sign language only.

The Giant Wheel

With a diameter of 2.5 meters, this installation incorporates 63 aluminum pipes of varying lengths, producing a Bach chorale. Visitors can freely play the pipes by striking them and turning the wheel. This interactive exhibit highlights the relationship between tube size, musical tones, and rhythm.

A Circular Xylophone

Featuring 180 keys of different lengths, a ball rolls down the slide from the shortest key to the longest, creating a chromatic sound sequence.

A keyboard

With 15 keys produces two octaves; at the back are hammers that operate much like the hammers of a piano. These set-in-motion wooden pendulums gently strike a set of sound pipes.

A Slope

Comprising 30-tone groups that harmonize to produce a joyful melody. Two balls, released along distinct paths with a slight time lag, converge to play the same musical piece.

A Crank

By turning the handle on the side of the structure, users control nine pistons linked to a medium-sized soprano recorder. This mechanism generates ascending and descending sounds using the recorder’s nine tones, with the speed determining the tempo of the music.

The Harp

Encompassing a two-octave range with all chromatic scale notes, played by plucking rubber strings or directly striking the pipes with a stick. This exhibit illustrates the correlation between a pipe’s length and the tonal range it produces.

Recorders Wheel

Consisting of twelve large alto recorders, operated by a distinctive set of pistons. Gravity triggers a weight mechanism that propels air, producing various tunes.

Sitar House

A pyramid-shaped structure composed of resonating chambers arranged in triangles. Visitors can enter and envelop themselves in the sounds it generates. One side of the house is chromatically tuned to produce Eastern-style sounds. On the other side, three centrally joined string groups create a wave-like sound using piano strings and screws.


An arrangement of randomized chord sounds. The rhythm is determined by the speed of the handles, resulting in polyphony. Multiple users can simultaneously operate the exhibit.

Giant Slide

A 14.5-meter structure comprising 120 tubes of varying lengths and 80 spaces. As a ball slides down, it strikes the tubes, producing Mozart’s Turkish March.

Percussion Wheel

Featuring various instruments attached to the twelve sides of this polygonal structure. When the wheel turns, the devices engage in an enjoyable musical ensemble.
