Climbing walls in homes are far from a common sight, but maybe it shouldn’t be so. If you could install a climbing wall as whimsical and lovely as this one by Nendo, it is easy to imagine such walls popping up in homes everywhere.
This wall is part of a fitness club in Tokyo, where it combines a rugged outdoor sport with a fantastical storybook aesthetic. Climbers grab onto hand and footholds that look like picture frames, mirrors, vases and birdcages.
The same look would be perfect for an in-home climbing gym. Rather than the typical industrial climbing wall, the Alice in Wonderland-inspired theme would fit in perfectly with the objects already present in the home – but in a perfectly silly way.
