LADD is a bookshelf with a small, five-step ladder magnetically attached in front -- inspired by a common misbehaviour when people step on the closest random object to reach high places. The ladder’s ready-availability reduces the tendency to use stools, side tables, or more precariously, stacks of books when attempting to access higher levels. LADD is designed for a more safe exercise of day-to-day household tasks. When the ladder is not in use, it quietly blends in and becomes part of the bookshelf.
