Is your copy of Joan Didion’s The White Album really up on that top shelf of your tall bookshelf? You’ll know in a moment when you ascend this handy—and award-winning—ladder. Storage dilemmas are solved by its ability to fold completely flat to just two inches thick (even if its attractive sleek silhouette tempts you to leave it on display). Includes a peg for easy wall hanging. Made by Design House Stockholm, a manufacturer in MoMA’s collection.
This step ladder is designed by Karl Malmvall, an award-winning Swedish industrial designer who comes from a family of furniture designers. He’s known for his attention to the practical details of design.
