Ladder by Itay Laniado

Israeli designer Itay Laniado has designed a collapsible ladder held together by a strap under tension.

The strap is tightened with a ratchet and forms two rungs of the ladder once assembled.

A loop in the strap acts as a handle once collapsed.

"The ladder is a tension system that relays on the ratchet to hold it, no screws or glue involved," says Laniado. "The ladder is also collapsible: it can be disassembled and assembled in a more compact way."
