Patternity's graphic climbing wall inside east London's Ace Hotel


Patternity hand-painted the pattern on the plywood wall and integrated different coloured climbing holds into the surface design. The gradient of the wall can be adjusted from 11 to 50 degrees using a crank – accommodating both novice and accomplished climbers.Patternity created the bouldering wall as part of Ace's Ready Made Go 2 project, where a group of designers were invited to create pieces that will be used in the hotel.
