Changing a light bulb. Getting a book from the shelf. Or taking the coffee machine from the upper shelf board in the kitchen. No home is complete without a step ladder. However, they are usually just functional, dull foreign objects in their own living space. With Karl Marmvall’s Step, this is completely different: The folding ladder is functional and decorative, a completely unique object in high-gloss colours. The folding ladder is so appealing that it can serve as an interior accessory on the wall.
“We have more and more things in our homes. Electric devices, kitchen tools etc. We use our homes from the ground to the roof. This is the reason why I wanted the Step folding ladder to be easily accessible, leaning on a wall, instead of hiding it in the cupboard, ” says Karl Malmvall.
Malvall is very interested in mechanical design aspects, from pocket knives to garden furniture, which also explains the small rod for hanging Step on the wall. “Simply hang the ladder on the wall. It is only 50 mm thick and always ready to be used.”
The Step folding ladder is available in different colours.Also in our blog:
