OP & NED is on a mission in the intersection of art, design and architecture. We we design outdoor spaces as  active tools to create change.


We create children's outdoor playgrounds that are beautiful, imaginative and innovative in collaboration with some of the world's best playground makers, city developers and experts - the children themselves.

To ensure that it is always the best idea realized, we have our own wood production and close cooperation with skilled suppliers for other materials.


I 2030 bor 75% af verdens børn i byerne.

Det kræver nytænkning.

Interplay between the object and the child makes his total world — play. He exploits the vitality of his environment and draws upon his imagination to create his world.

M. Paul Friedberg, 1970

Because it’s difficult to find non-commercial playground information. And I find that frustrating.
Because a playground doesn’t have to cost a million bucks and come in a box. In fact, it’s better if it doesn’t.
Because playgrounds are under-recognized as an artistic medium.
Because everybody loves a playground.

Paige Johnson, 2008

A creative playground is only half a creative space; it’s also a creative attitude. And we’re changing attitudes as much as we’re changing spaces.

Jay Beckwith, 1973
