Artist Tobias Rehberger is the creative behind Oberhausen, Germany’s “Slinky Springs To Fame” bridge. After an intense collaboration with structural designers of Schlaich Bergermann and Partner, the 496 coil bridge came to fruition.
High strength steel was utilized to spane the Rhine Canal, and there was great care taken into account for the color choices of the flooring on this public walkway. The classic slinky toy was the ultimate inspiration for this bridge, with a creative artist’s twist. The night time views of this toy-based bridge by Rehberger might be the most stunning of all.
