Centipenty is a colossal teeter-tottering spring rider that bounces, sways, pivots, and clangs. Created for Wing Luke Elementary School in Seattle, WA, the 24 seats, in 3 sizes, derive their dimensions from the classroom chairs for kindergartners through 5th graders, who activate the movement and sound with their exuberant participation.


The goal for this project was to create an engaging space for the students at Wing Luke Elementary School.


Public Art Services was invited by artist Matthew Geller to oversee the design, engineering, fabrication and installation for this project. Collaborative partners include: Elmendorf/Geurts.
