  2. Organic
    This Corian screen/handrial spans the side of this wooden block staircase in Paris, designed by architect Ammar Eloueini + architect Marc Fornes of THEVERYMANY™. The computer generated pattern is fairly open at the bottom and gradually becomes tighter towards to the top, while the wooden treads become thicker. Photo courtesy of Christian Richters

  9. Geometric ►◄
    The Grove Park project from Bell Phillips Architects features a staircase that is “created from a complex geometry of folded triangular facets which appear to float effortlessly within the space.”
  10. Linear
    Paratelier designed this linear staircase with vertical wooden boards that connect the treads to the ceiling above and the floor below. Even though they’re made from simple, natural wood panels, the way they aligned the vertical panels makes for a striking design. Photo © Leonardo Finotti
