Usit, finally a chair safe to climb!

Usit originated in the desire to create a stepladder that fits into a contemporary interior. Today’s stepladders often look too utilitarian, and they are quickly returned to storage after being used. Although it is collapsible, the Usit doesn’t have to be packed away. The two-step version of Usit can be used as a seat, the three-step version as a high stool.

Two versions of the Usit in three colour combinations are for sale via and

This design unites Maarten Olden’s knowledge of and passion for furniture and industrial design. The Usit is an extremely comfortable chair, and an incredibly safe stepladder.

As an object the Usit stylishly combines wood and aluminium with innovative details.
