PekiPeki just opened up their colorful climbing wall in Shibuya, a town in Tokyo, Japan.

This wall is pleasing to the eye, as it looks like a hanging piece of art in an almost all-white building.

One of 23 wards in Japan, the PekiPeki studio lets children and adults perfect their climbing skills while enjoying the unique aesthetics.

Implications - PekiPeki has incorporated the idea of comfort to sports which, is an extremely rare concept considering its competitive nature. The company is following the popularity of open spaces and natural lighting as its design focus and has executed it beautifully. While this concept usually applies to offices and museums, perhaps sports arenas can now also follow this approach and transform a rigorous sport such as rock-climbing into something more inviting.
