The Corner Ladder, as it's aptly-named, features rungs that split in two and grooves in the rails so the whole thing collapses into a fraction of its original size. So it's easy to stash in the corner of a closet, or slide into the smallest of crawl spaces.

And the intelligent way the rungs fold away means the ladder is still incredibly sturdy when unfolded. So you're not sacrificing safety just so it doesn't take up a lot of space in your basement storage room. [Company & Company via Yanko Design]
