Concept

A staircase, a sculpture or a clever storage system ? What if it were all three at once ? The reactions are unanimous : once you have seen this spiral staircase, all you can say is “Wow !” Hanging from a steel casket integrated into your ceiling, an assembly of hardwood storage blocks descends in a spiral to the lower level to form a staircase. The structure that is formed by the stacked wooden cases creates a frame that is surprisingly rigid and stable. Each case is a display case in which to present the objects that you care about and want to put on show. Another surprising detail is the passage of light from one floor to the other. The staircase is detached from the rest in order to better stand out.
