The StairCASE from designer Danny Kuo is a smart solution for people with limited space (or a lot of books!). It’s a standard bookcase where each shelf is actually a box that slides out allowing it to become stairs. Just slide out a shelf and you can easily reach the top shelf without a ladder. This would also be great for people in small apartments that have a lofted area for sleeping or storage… a better alternative to the spiral staircase or a ladder.
