Altura's "sleek yet sturdy design" features two stepped tiers that can be used to hold up everything from books to lamps and an entire person, allowing users to reach high-up places in their home.
"A lot of step stools have a similar look as their function often dictates their shape, which can constrict the design," Perez explained. "I wanted to make a step stool that was different from that."
"I enjoy finding products on the market that are not fully developed because it gives me the opportunity to design something different from what already exists," the designer continued.
The Altura stool is clad in oak veneer and comes in a natural and black-stained finish.
Both versions also feature a clear polyurethane lacquer on top to protect the wood.
