Ribbon Stair

May 3, 2009


“Thin staircase constructed from 10mm thick sheet metal, the concept was inspired by delicate rippling ribbon. Pairs of adjoining steps connected with an oblique external side joist form a bracket anchored in the wall. Each of the brackets is constructed as a rigid frame. The higher steps bear mainly drawing forces, while pressure is transmitted through the lower steps.”
