This beautiful and minimalist stepladder by Skagerak is called Noboru, the Japanese word meaning "to climb." As a stepladder, Noboru is slim and sleek, with a lower step that can slide in and out with the aid of a short handle beneath the surface. When not in use as a stepladder, Noboru can be used as a stool or side table. It is crafted from solid oak and has a slender profile that makes it appear more like a piece of furniture than a tool.
