Seeing the dramatic sweeping of a spiral staircase design upon entering a home creates a stunning effect that dazzles guests. This particular concept staircase by Disguincio & Co. is composed of folded flexible plexiglass pieces that make up a sturdy and structural spine.

Titled 'Folio,' the spiraling risers would be made out of fiber-reinforced composite steps that combine together to create a sculpture in the air that is as elegant as the curve of a spine, yet strong and robust enough to leave a lasting impression. The white plexiglass creates a continuous structure with sweeping folds and smooth lines, with a shiny sleek finish that complements a stylishly decadent home.

The 'Folio' spiral staircase design is a complex form that has yet to be made into a full-scale model. Stats for Helical Plexiglass Steps Trending: Older & Mild
