Usit- or the Stepladder Chair– is an elegant furniture piece with two functions: an extremely comfortable chair, and an incredibly safe stepladder. Envisioned by Dutch designer Maarten Olden, the project features a clean minimalist design, easy to integrate in a variety of contemporary interiors. Available in two versions and three color combinations, it is safe to say the Stepladder Chair ranks high in both adaptability and ingenuity.
The designer explained what triggered the idea for a chair design integrating a ladder: “Usit originated in the desire to create a stepladder that fits into a contemporary interior. Today’s stepladders often look too utilitarian, and they are quickly returned to storage after being used. Although it is collapsible, the Usit doesn’t have to be packed away. The two-step version of Usit can be used as a seat, the three-step version as a high stool“. If you recall, we also published Tenzing Ladder, a product stylishly developed by Fritz Specht that partially resembles this creative chair.
