Natural-shaped Wooden Spiraling Staircase

organic-shaped-wooden-spiraling-staircase-1.jpg This amazing staircase, made by Atmos for a London apartment, is the winner of the 2013 Uk Wood Award. The staircase is actually element of a greater wooden structure that generates a area in a room. Tucked in 1 corner of the greater area, it would seem to expand out of the floor like a giant tree branch, that splits up into smaller sized branches to for the stairs. The CNC lower layers of wood spiral slightly to create a developed-in shelf structure at its reduced portion, and to give access to the space-in-a-space at its prime component. The layers seem to be freestanding and floating in the air, as the metal structure that hold them collectively or attach them to the walls is practically invisible. The structure of the staircase seems to be alive, like a tree that has not stopped developing and which is obliged to increase in a confined room. The wooden layers that form the stairs make their way against the walls, bending and deforming against the corners that make them alter their route. The best twigs turn out to be narrower and they line the walls producing a handrail. The meandering edge of every stair and the pieces that type the balustrade are of a darker wood essence than the rest of the phase. This dark-light contrast emphasizes even far more the style, which seems a lot more like a wooden sculpture than a functional framework. Incredible as it may possibly appear, this construction was delivered in flat packs and assembled on site, in less than a day.
