Noboru means ’to climb’ in Japanese and is a multifunctional step ladder. The lower step can slide in, taking up less space and turning the step ladder into a stool or side table. Under the step a short handle is milled, so you can grab it and pull it out and push it back in. The minimalistic step ladder in solid oak has slim profiles on all edges allowing the assemblings to be visible, which gives Noboru its aesthetic excess in the overall elegant and discrete expression.

Origin Oak grows in most temperate zones. The Skagerak oak comes from European forests and is either 100% FSC certified or FSC mix certified, supporting sustainable forest management. The selection of the wood is extremely careful and all processing is by hand, so that only the best and most durable pieces of wood are used in production.
Why Oak is a sturdy and hardwearing type of wood containing natural tannins that will protect against bacterial growth. Combined with its light, elegant colour and well-defined grains, this makes oak wood safe choice for high-quality interior. Cleaning The wood comes with no finish. If you choose not to treat it with soap or oil, use a suitable cleaning agent for wood.
Maintenance As the wood is untreated it may be affected by grease and colorants. For this reason, we recommend saturating the wood with soap or a suitable furniture oil to make it more resistant. If you wish to use soap or oil, use a suitable product. Be aware that the wood will change colour when applying soap or oil.
