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—step 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. Red, black and white styles are made from lacquered rubberwood; Natural style is solid oak.
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.
