Like custom outdoor pieces of art, SplinterWorks’ waterslides are captivating. Not only do they add hours of endless poolside fun, for kids and adults alike, but they also serve as a sculptural highlight for year-round outdoor living enjoyment. SplinterWorks’ Trist design (pictured) plays with a tripod base, keeping you guessing how it works until you find hidden integrated steps up the back. The mirror-polished stainless steel reflects an intriguing and contorted echo of the environments, making a subtle but poignant impact. Their alluringly simple shapes look like child’s play, but under the surface they are intelligently engineered to be free of visible structural armature, fixtures, and fittings—and that’s what makes these a product Luxury Pools + Outdoor Living loves! splinterworks.co.uk For more custom products and designs, visit luxurypools.com.…
