The project responds to the customer requests who wanted a modern stair but at the same time asked for a safe passage between the floors of the house, so the system of ceiling mounting became the railing of the stairs thus fulfilling this dual task.

This is the latest BEAR Progetti’s project and it’s a metal staircase realizad with iron plates of 8mm thickness for the horizontal parts and of 5mm thickness for the vertical parts.

The stair is hanging from the ceiling and is fixed to the wall in order to suggest the idea of lightness.

To emphasize the reduced thickness of the stair we used the contrast between white and black colors on the different parts.

In order to increase the effect of lightness, the first four steps are made of wood and are completely detached from the metal staircase giving the impression that the upper part of the stair might fly above the floor.

The use of these two heterogeneous materials was also required to emphasize the beauty of the metal artefact that is the real star of the project.

In order to maximize the functions of the stair the underside of the wooden element has also been converted into a small closet.
