A Tokyo climbing wall like no different • Eurogamer.internet


Deep in Tokyo’s fashion district, there’s said to be a climbing wall like no other. I first read about it years ago in Dezeen. Sometimes I wonder if it’s still there. I hope it is.

The wall is located in a branch of the ILLOIHA fitness club and was designed by the design team Nendo. “To express the original brand concept of ‘becoming beautiful through movement’, we chose the theme ‘climbing in Omotesando’,” explains the website. “[We] developed a design that takes advantage of the disconnect between a rugged outdoor sport and Tokyo’s fashion district.”
