In recognition of Windows new ‘Fast and Fun’ operating system Helix were commissioned to design and build a giant slide, to be installed in Bluewater shopping centre. The project was in cooperation with Slice and Mischief, to reinforce the brands message.
One thing about slides is that they aren’t particularly fun if you get stuck, so we had to seek outside information from those well versed in the art of slide-making to avoid this. The entire thing was built, designed and tested in our workshop and we enjoyed being able to slide down from the office to the ground floor! It was a shame it had to go… Beginning with morning installation the entire process was filmed for viral purposes, Youtube link added below.
