This is so wonderful! Dutch design firm HIK Ontwerpers installed a slide at Overvecht Station as a part of their ongoing urban installation project series. The slide isn’t just for decoration — the Dutch railway company encourages passengers to use it if they are running late or just need a quicker way to get into the station. I love the official name of this thing — they call it a “transfer accelerator“. We need these at some of the deeper subway stations in NYC! The Pop-Up City has a video if you want to see it in action. [via]
