Product description

One Step Up is a bookcase that combines form, material and function in a simple and chaste
design. Francis Cayouette has been inspired by the ladder as object and he has created a new
flexible piece of furniture ideal for storage.
Francis Cayouette has used recognizable elements taken from the form of the ladder and
incorporated its mobile attributes. Details such as the fittings are emphasized and bring
authenticity to the object. The natural ash wood and the industrial metal shelves create
dynamic and the exquisite materials work great together and create a complete expression.
Francis Cayouette explains:” I am very absorbed with multi-functionality, meaning products
that can be used in various different ways. I wanted to design a flexible bookcase without an
inconvenient disassembling process which easily could be moved around creating new spaces
in the domestic home or the office. The classical ladder is easy to move around in the room
where you need it. The idea of taking the form of the ladder seemed logical. The final result is
a bookcase that looks like a ladder with exposed fittings and a wooden frame but with the
quality and finish characterized by superb furniture”.
One Step Up creates room and frame for storage. Place various One Step Up bookcases beside
each other and create your own bookcase system. One Step Up bookcase can also be used as
a light room divider.
