You’re probably like us, and haven’t given much thought to the design of that step stool hiding in your closet. Once you lay your eyes on the Metaphys Lucano Step Stool you’ll remember why your step stool remains in the closet, not out on display. The Lucano utilizes a pure minimalistic approach to the folding 3-step ladder. Not only does this step stool look fantastic, but it also functions seamlessly, and is sturdy as hell. The Metaphys Lucano Step Stool may not be industrial strength grade, but will hold up to 220lbs (sorry heavyweights). These stools are a product of the collaboration between Metaphys, and the oldest manufacturer of ladders in Japan, Hasegawa Kogyo Co. To boot, Metaphys received a Red Dot Design award for these stools. If ya need one, you can pick one up here.
