Noboru Stool

$528.00 USD

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.

Lead Time

Lead times vary but Skagerak items are typically available within a 4 - 8 week time period. We will communicate an estimated time for each item, but since many products are arriving from overseas there could be delays. Old Faithful Shop is not responsible for delays caused by production and transit times.

Please note that supply chain issues, manufacturing and shipping delays are ongoing and leads times can be extended despite our best efforts. Unfortunately this is beyond our control.


Variations in wood, fabric, finish and colour may appear slightly differently than what appears on your computer monitor in photographic form. We have sample pieces in our store and are more than happy to discuss options and concerns with you regarding your order.

We can offer shipping and delivery once the items have arrived at Old Faithful Shop for no additional cost. This can include simple delivery or white glove service with assembly for customers in the Vancouver area. Special Order items can also be picked up from our store location at no additional charge. Items must be retrieved within 7 business days of their arrival to Old Faithful Shop. 

Partial delivery of multiple item orders may require delivery or pick-up as the items become available at our store location.
