EeStairs is delighted to have the privilege of designing and installing a bespoke DNA feature staircase for a beautiful home on the French Riviera.
The DNA staircase by EeStairs is a captivating design solution characterised by two intertwined helical steel tubes at the centre of the stair, reminiscent of Mother Nature’s remarkable DNA strand. The recent installation in Monaco is a beautiful example featuring laminated glass treads, glass balustrade and a polished stainless steel structure.
The DNA staircase is the brainchild of EeStairs’ Senior Designer Geoffrey Packer who was inspired by the interplay of two rising helical tubular elements. Geoff’s first DNA staircase founds its home in The Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation in Lisbon, Portugal where it was the centrepiece in an exhibition celebrating 200 years since the birth of Charles Darwin. The staircase was an elegant yet functional solution featuring a slide for children and designed for disassemble, as the exhibition would tour Europe.
