Ladder sign / Signboard

Ladder sign

Ladder Sign started off from cultural inflammation of signboards already widespread in Korea, Japan and China. Signboards that are fully dispersed in every corner of the streets lost their original function as information deliverer. Perhaps they have become useless tools causing visual pollution.What if we can add a meaning to those signboards and use them in a more useful way?Ladder Sign is a new product that could be used to help a person escape on his or her own in case of emergency situations such as fire and so on.It is usually used as a signboard, but in emergency situations sections of the signboard is separated and it becomes a ladder
