Matilda is a foldable kitchen stool cum ladder created by Finnish designer Stefan Lindfors. In designer’s words, “The kitchen is the soul of our home, and Matilda is the heart of our kitchen. Sit on her, climb up her ladder and reach up and above from her, eat or socialize. Even as folded to be stored away she doesn’t grow in height, but slides right under your table and don’t need a second hiding space. So as a foldable kitchen stool she’s unique. And so is her dress, the painting created by her designer: Creatures and herbs from the ocean and above crawl out Matilda’s boiling kettle. And the fire keeps on burning.” Photo Credit and Copyright – Stefan Lindfors.
