Inspired by Kebnekaise, Sweden’s tallest mountain, Johan Kauppi and Nina Kauppi designed a minimalist outdoor gym for Nola that lands somewhere between sculpture, public furniture, and landscape architecture. Kebne consists of five individual, peak-like structures built for various types of exercise, strength training, and stretching, for the entire community to enjoy.
The three-dimensional frames become stations for the different types of exercises with diagrams attached showing how each one is to be used. Since each of these components are fixed, there’s no continued maintenance as with regular gym equipment that contains weights, cables, and counterweights.
Kebne can be used as a destination or meeting spot for people of all fitness abilities to use and enjoy, from the beach, park, school, or recreational area. Just like the mountain that inspired the collection, it’s meant to be inclusive.
