METAPHYS lucano / Step stool and step ladder


Discipline: Product


Discipline: Product

Bringing the concept of functional and form to new heights, lucano is a lightweight stepladder that is as nice to look at as it is to use. lucano includes a locking / unlocking bar. To engage the lock push down on the bar after opening the ladder, when finished simply lift up to disengage lock and fold. Even when collapsed and free-standing, lucano stands out as a design piece. No longer is it necessary to store the lucano as its compact size and unique design fit in any room. Even the packaging is unique and displays various uses.
