Wonder Walls

During my home-gym rat days, a treadmill was a staple piece in the house. How often it was used remained to be seen. Eventually, it evolved to become a towel rack/shoe cabinet/dog bed. An obtrusive, unsightly one at that. (Thank God, it's gone now.)

I stumbled on these ingenious indoor climbing walls on the net. Talk about sosyal climbing. A great solution for the would-be white elephants of the fitness kind. Now, the only problem would be getting someone to actually step on these gorgeous art pieces.

Functional and fabulous... I want!

Designer Joris Laarman puts the FUN in function and the IN in ordinary. Bravo.
