Scaletta: A Heating Ladder by Elisa Giovanni

View all 7 Photos

Scaletta is a heating ladder designed by Elisa Giovanni for Tubes. The Italian design comes in two versions, one freestanding and the other leaning against the wall. Both are made of aluminum and finished in a solid-color finish such as white or blue. The step ladder model also benefits from a Corian steel stand, which supports additional weight. Plugging into the wall anywhere in the home, both designs are electric. They radiate heat throughout the room and, unlike most other space heaters, can be also used as a hanger. Coming soon in February, 2015, the bright design will be available online from Tubes and from select dealers internationally.
