Entirely handcrafted, Alta is a reinterpretation of a traditionnal apple ladder. Such ladders were often burnt to prevent moister from infiltrating the wood. Their tops were narrow and the bases were wide and they used to be made using long branches sliced in half, and the steps were simply fixed with the most basic joinery techniques. Each aspect of these objects has been translated into aesthetic principles to create a contemporary object, visually impactful yet refined and functional.
