Victorinox is known for making tool-packed Swiss Army Knives. So it’s fitting that Stephen Kenn and Victorinox’ Furniture collaboration resulted in three pieces perfectly aligned with the Swiss brand’s obsession with function. The Stepladder Chair (left), for instance, is made of powercoated steel fitted with vegetable-tanned leather that pivots forward to become a stepladder (click to 2nd image). The Convertible Desk, which boasts a surface that lifts up to form a drafting table (and to expose a storage space beneath), can also be transformed into a coffee table by pulling out and reversing the legs. And the Storage Column functions as a storage box, mirror, and whiteboard, with fold-out bookshelves on the back and independently spinning cubes to customize the look.
Available at Stephen Kenn – $1,800 to $4,500
