35 Sculptural Staircases

From Unique Steps That Twirl to LED Staircases

— March 18, 2014 — Eco
Unique steps come in a variety of forms these days, as these examples of sculptural staircases demonstrates. Looking for a way to improve storage space? Now even a set of stairs can help with this dilemma.

The all-in-one staircase for example is also a fully functional desk and storage area. While this may sound cramped, the overall design is surprisingly well organized. Architects as well as artists have re-thought the staircase, introducing spiral designs and angular contraptions. The Orange Staircase takes on this angular look, and is reminiscent of a game of Snakes and Ladders (minus the snakes).

Looking to renovate your home? Perhaps adding some unique steps is the only thing needed for a modern look.
