Suspended Wooden Staircase Floats on Air


What a delightful design for a suspended staircase! We love the floating motion – and the unusual way it’s constructed.

The staircase is inside the A-2 house in Fukoka City, built by Architect Show Co. Ltd. of Japan. Isn’t the wood grain impressive? And notice how seamlessly the wood connects from the stairs, the supports and the floor. Everything is designed to flow together and work together. We love the motion created by the lines of the rich wood. The atmosphere is so relaxed, so calming. Because the room has a motion, a flow all of its own, almost as if it were alive. Harmony has been created in house by this awesome Japanese design.
