Most step ladders on the market these days are pretty unattractive as they look like they’re made for a construction site instead of inside your house. Jeeyoung Yang put a stop to that with the Triangle Step Ladder. Knowing everyone needs a little extra height from time to time, Yang designed one with design lovers in mind.


Inspired by wire models in minimal 2D forms that transform into 3D structures with a rotational point, the triangular ladder features simple mechanisms that take it from flat to functional in seconds. It’s made of 1/2″ steel tubing and walnut making it durable and strong for regular use. Flattened, the ladder is 1/2″ thick and can be hung on the wall to store it.


The step ladder features two steps to give you a 7″ or 12″ lift off of the ground.
