Discarded foam holds, silicone molds, half-finished sculptures, plaster, dust…
So many reminders that reflect a state of mind founded on an everlasting search for new ideas. The will to explore creative possibilities has led to testing different shapes, trying various materials and mastering molding techniques.
Flathold was born of the encounter between an international route setter and a visual arts student, whose first experience together dates back to 2008. A common goal: to create and develop shapes and grips, to fashion the foam so as to approach the feelings one gets on a natural line.
Beyond their basic function, the goal is to make the holds aesthetic.
