Sophisticated isn’t a word we typically apply to climbing walls. But then we’ve never seen anything quite like Lunar’s Nova—an in-home design, still in the concept stage, that blends seamlessly with a modern urban habitat. Lunar, a San Francisco design firm, traded the usual plywood-and-resin construction for sleek epoxy panels that look more Dwell than Rock & Ice. Practice routes are dialed in via iPhone app: choose the difficulty of your problem and soft-colored backlights illuminate the holds in endless combinations.
