    An experimental staircase made from a suspended rope net

    ‘Net Linz’ is a rope-based installation that allows people to move between the floors of Austria’s OK Center for Contemporary Art.

    Produced by Croatian-Austrian design collective Numen, the staircase alternative is made from interwoven rope and has been suspended from the gallery’s ceiling, with sandbags weighing it to the floor.

    The installation stretches across the length and height of the room and can be accessed from any level of the building.

    Visitors are able to navigate their way to the next floor by climbing and swinging their way through the canyon-like rope maze.

    The journey along the steep and undulating path is made more challenging by the swaying sensation created when the pliable structure changes shape under the weight of its participants.

    Net Linz is on display at the OK Center for Contemporary Art in Linz, Austria, until October 19th.
