Carbon Ladder

View text

Marc wanted to make a ladder that addressed three issues he deemed important: aesthetics, strength, and weight. He wanted to conceive a ladder that was very light to move around, unlike most ladders which are cumbersome and unwieldy.  With this ladder, the goal was to weigh in at less than 2.5 kilos for about 2 meters tall. Due to the shape, it was complex to produce. A factory in France that produces aerospace products was selected for the fabrication; the ladders were entirely handmade.
