Given their usefulness, it is surprising that the common step stool is such an overlooked piece of furniture. Steps is a simple rethinking of this traditional form. It is proportioned to work equally well as steps or a stool when extra seating is needed. The space between the risers fits a hand and the weight is well balanced making it easy to carry around. The structure of our Steps dispenses of unnecessary braces by it's alternately angled risers, lending the piece a spare architectural form.
