Noboru Stool

Noboru means ’to climb’ in Japanese and is the perfect moniker for this multifunctional step ladder. The lower step can slide in, taking up less space, turning the step ladder into a stool or a side table. Under the step a short handle is milled, so you can grab it and pull it out and push it back in. This minimalistic step ladder is crafted in solid oak and has slim profiles on all edges allowing the assemblings to be visible giving it an overall elegant and discrete expression.

  • Material: Oak FSC 100%
  • Measures W45 x D31 x H47 cm / W17.7 x D12.2 x H18.5 in
  • From our Skagerak Collection

About the designer MSDS Studio:

MSDS is a Canadian design studio established by Jessica Nakanishi and Jonathan Sabine in 2013. The studio occupies themselves with topics like resourcefulness, practicality, materiality and legible forms. They welcome the inspiration that comes with each project and try to look for a way 'into' each design. That means looking at it from multiple angles until finding a core idea to revolve the project around.

The studio aims at creating objects and spaces that acknowledge the past, respond authentically to the present, and point to a viable future. MSDS’s objects and furniture bridge contemporary culture while adhering to the abiding principles of good design and the inheritance of craftsmanship.
