Ladder Bookcase offers generous storage with a relatively small footprint. Steps of varied depth meet the wall when placed at an angle. This statement piece is highly functional, and suitable for a variety of environments.

Internationally renowned, Istanbul-based multidisciplinary design studio, Autoban was founded in 2003 by Seyhan Özdemir and Sefer Çağlar, and later joined by Efe Aydar. Now employing 35 staff, Autoban works across architecture and interiors, product and experiential design.

With a portfolio that includes transportation, commercial, retail, and office developments, their work is typified by familiar forms and materials repurposed in vital, contemporary ways. Their work has redefined Istanbul’s cityscape, including numerous hospitality, retail, residential and public realm developments, and is now also found in London, Madrid, Hong Kong, Moscow and China, as well as Azerbaijan.

Autoban furniture and lighting developed as a rational extension to their interior work. Highly influenced by nature, the rituals of daily life and the diversity of Istanbul, Autoban playfully reinterpret the familiar through modern forms and contrasting materials.

Select products from the Autoban portfolio are manufactured by De La Espada craftspeople.
