One Step Up High Bookcase


Why We Love It

One Step Up is a bookcase that combines form, material and function in a simple and chaste design. Inspired by the ladder as an object, designer Francis Cayouette created a new flexible piece of furniture ideal for storage. One Step Up creates both the space and framework for cool storage. Arrange the versatile bookcases beside each other to create your own shelving system, or use as a light and airy room divider.

  • The One Step Up Bookcase was inspired by the form and function of a ladder, which can easily be folded together and moved to wherever it is needed in the room.
  • Available in High and Low sizes, One Step Up is ideal for storage.
  • Creates space in the room due to the ease with which it can be moved from one place to another.
  • Use on its own or combine several units to create a wide bookcase or room divider.
  • The natural ash wood and industrial metal shelves create an interesting dynamic.
  • Details, such as the fittings, are accentuated and give the shelving unit authenticity.
  • Lacquered ash structure with white powder coated steel shelves and fittings.
  • Comes flat packed.
  • Easy to assemble – just fold out the ladder-like frame and put the shelves in place.
  • Load capacity of approximately 33 lbs per shelf.
