Hailo U: The stool with a hidden talent

At first sight, the new arrival looks like a stool produced in a purist modern design. But there’s much more to it than that: it can be a place by the sofa to rest your coffee cup, a bedside table, a seat in the hall for taking off your boots and - this is where the company’s core competence comes in - steps for when you need a leg up.

The transformation is due to its ingenious and unique structure: the inside of the U conceals a second step that tilts through 180 degrees, turning the stool into steps and stylishly providing two functions in one.

This multi-talented piece is now on the market supplied in three finishes for use throughout the home: natural beech heartwood and black-brown and white lacquered beech wood. And when it comes to safety, this universal decor item can hold its own among proven Hailo products, as its compact design provides great stability, even when reaching out to the side, and can take loads of up to 150 kg. Both steps are generously sized and in non-slip design, while rubber feet provide for a firm footing and protect delicate floor surfaces.
