This Swedish manufacturer of outdoor playground equipment for children has become widely known for its simply constructed, brightly coloured products that have set international standards for safety and design quality. Immediately recognizable for its child‐friendly scale, amongst the first products of the company were the M100 animals on springs, introduced in 1970. Later designs included the Legeby playground system of 1982. Many Kompan products have achieved an almost iconic significance in children's play equipment and in 1994 the company was awarded the European Design Prize.
