Yes, those curves make us a little nervous, but heavens, this ladder from Swedish designer Charlie Styrbjörn Nilsson looks fine, doesn’t it? Seeking to redefine a tried-and-true profile, Nilsson offers a simple, yet radical twist: elegantly curved rungs, made by bending solid ash. “The repetitive bends create an intriguing graphic and sculptural expression,” Nilsson says, and we can’t argue with that. The ladder will make its debut at the London Design Festival later this month.
