Designers Nendo have sent us some images of their climbing wal from the new Illoiha Omotesando club in Tokyo.They used mirrors, picture frames, a birdcage, and other items found on walls in a home re-purposed as climbing hand holds.
They used mirrors, frames, birdcage, and other objects of decoration that can be found in a house instead of the usual rock-shaped holds.
http://cubeme.com/blog/?s=NendoTo express the original brand concept of “becoming beautiful through movement”, we chose the theme “rock-climbing in Omotesando” and developed a design that uses the mismatch between a rugged outdoor sport and Tokyo’s fashion district to its advantage. Instead of the usual rough and outdoorsy climbing wall, we came up with the idea of using interior design elements like picture frames, mirrors, deer heads, bird cages and flower vases to create a challenging wall with hard-to-find holds and unusual finger grips. We hope that our uniquely Omotesando-style climbing wall inspires newcomers to try out the sport, and starts a new wave in fitness with style.
