STAIRCASE WITH MODERN GLASS TREADS

Glass treads for a modern staircase

 

Glass treads have been a valuable element of modern staircase design for many years. The straight two-stringer staircase boast an appealing combination of glass, steel and stainless steel. The architect implemented a filigree tensioning substructure made of stainless steel ropes underneath the stringers, an outstanding element of design which was excellently put into practice. It is also striking how the material mix of the staircase integrates perfectly into a style of interior dominated by a parquet floor.
