Up the Rung

Pack Away Stool

This stool was created from thin layers of veneer which are vacuum compressed together and bent into shape to offer a sleek and modern look. This was designed to take up minimum space but could be pulled out to create a three tier step up stool strong enough for young and old. The smaller stools are attached with a pull out bracket but the taller one lifts away to be used separately if needed and also doubles up as a table.

Fitted Staircase

This staircase was commissioned as an improvement to an existing stair to a mezzanine bedroom floor. The client required extra large treads to enable an easy descent when walking down in the morning.

The treads and risers are both made from Beech with the strings made from Redwood.

Handmade Ladder

The design brief from the client was to provide an extra sleeping area in the form of a mezzanine floor locating in the entrance hall of an Edwardian flat. With limited floor space but plenty of ceiling height this was deemed possible if access to the new floor took up only minimal space below.

The design of this ladder incorporated 10 different species of woods. Starting with the darkest at the bottom (Black American Walnut) and finishing with the lightest at the top (Sycamore) gave the client the idea of the staircase to heaven.

The ladder is secured at the top by 2 Sycamore blocks that allow the ladder to pivot towards and away from the wall. This gives a repeatable location that secures the ladder when in use and returns it home against the wall when not.

With all surrounding walls and ceiling painted white the overall effect of the ladder stands out as a beautiful piece of highly functional furniture.
