Bookcase Pulls Out to Become Stairs

bookcase stairs 450x327 Bookcase Pulls Out to Become Stairs
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.

  • [...] It­’s no­ surprise t­hat­ a d­ud­e w­ho­ lives in a c­it­y o­f 18 m­illio­n peo­ple w­o­uld­ apprec­iat­e t­he need­ t­o­ c­o­nserve spac­e. Shang­hai-based­ art­ist­ D­anny K­uo­ c­reat­ed­ t­he St­airC­ASE, a bo­o­k­c­ase w­here t­he shelves slid­e o­ut­ t­o­ bec­o­m­e a st­airw­ell. W­e’ve seen t­he amal­gamati­o­­n o­­f­ shel­ves and stai­rs bef­o­r­e in­ Lo­n­do­n­, but S­tair­C­AS­E c­an­ be put jus­t abo­ut an­ywh­er­e. Th­e des­ign­ lets­ yo­u h­av­e a muc­h­ taller­ bo­o­k­s­h­elf­ (mo­s­t to­p o­ut at r­o­ugh­ly s­ix f­eet to­ ac­c­o­mmo­date h­uman­ h­eigh­t), o­r­ f­un­c­tio­n­s­ as­ a way to­ r­eac­h­ a lo­f­ted ar­ea f­o­r­ s­leepin­g o­r­ s­to­r­age. I c­o­uld’v­e us­ed s­o­meth­in­g lik­e th­is­ in­ N­ew Yo­r­k­. [Dan­n­y Ku­o via Cra­zi­e­st Ga­dge­ts] [...]

  • [...] It’s no surprise that a dude who lives in a city of 18 million people would appreciate the need to conserve space. Shanghai-based artist Danny Kuo created the StairCASE, a bookcase where the shelves slide out to become a stairwell. We’ve seen the amalgamation of shelves and stairs before in London, but StairCASE can be put just about anywhere. The design lets you have a much taller bookshelf (most top out at roughly six feet to accommodate human height), or functions as a way to reach a lofted area for sleeping or storage. I could’ve used something like this in New York. [Danny Kuo via Craziest Gadgets] [...]

    I love love love this idea. My eight year old has run out of room with all of her books. I was always afraid to put them too high and her falling. This is a terrific kids room idea. love it!
