Stairway to heaven

Colourful, made of iron, minimal, sculptural and spectacular. The most beautiful staircases you have ever seen

Both in case of renovation and of a new construction, stairs play a key role in interior design: they increase heights, make light fall down and spread from above, separate several rooms, add lofts and make maximum use of space with multifunctional solutions.

 

They can be light and graphic like the mark of the ink on the wall or solid like furniture, almost invisible or colourful, a functional and decorative element welcoming architects’ creative exercises.

 

We have chosen 10 stairs, but you can find much more in the album Inner Stairs on Archilovers.
