The Lucano stepladder by Metaphys emerged on the search of a contemporaneous design for a well known object. Through their new design Lucano stands in perfect harmony with modern furnishings and they unobtrusively fit in contemporary design.
This is possible because the ladder withdraws itself and reduces to the essential. Metaphys understands the stepladder as a sort of tool. Accordingly unobtrusive it should be. The Lucano forms are dominated by triangular lines. These were furthermore reduced to a minimum in their dimensions, so that the stepladder looks especially thin and accurate, sending only a minimum of visual information.
This is how Lucano can act in a sterile surrounding on a bathroom, as well as in a vivid ensemble or in the library or the children’s room. It never seems unsuitable or annoying.
The stepladder Lucano does also serve as a small stool for a little breather if necessary without any problems. Furthermore the stepladder is easy to be stored because of their small dimensions.
The stepladder Lucano was honoured with the Good Design Award as well as with the red dot Design Award because of the newly shaping.
