The breath-taking design takes the form of a backbone that weaves its way between two floors and appears to melt into the lower floor in a metallic puddle. It has a real Sci-Fi feel to it, don’t you think?
This is certainly one of the most creative staircases that we have seen at our site. What do you guys reckon?
