Fabricated in birch, with an optional calfskin bag that serves as a convenient soft shelf.


"When does a ladder become a piece of furniture? Usually designers have to shape physical objects, but sometimes they must mold people's views too: that is surely more complicated." says Bottari.


"Albina is a proud ladder with its head held high, that wants to be exhibited with the rest of the house."
