Don’t Walk Under A Ladder

The Safe-a-Stitious ladder, a playful design that alerts people to the old superstition “never walk underneath a ladder.” It looks like an ordinary ladder but when propped up against a wall, a number of nylon streamers sling out from it’s underparts warning all to beware. It’s a narrative that’s common place so no instructions are required. People universally get it and the design does well to point out how silly we all are. I’m not afraid. I’ll walk under it. I’ll bet you.
