This elegant brass openwork staircase was one of the Brass Workshop’s favorite projects in 2019. According to the architectural design, the brass banister was to match the other brass elements of interior décor and wall finishing details. The customer wanted an extra strong staircase that would appear light and transparent.
With that objective in mind, the bearing part of the staircase was made from 10mm sheet steel by means of water jet cutting.
The stairs were made from hard oak and mounted on a metal bridge-board.
The architectural design required that the banister match the other brass elements of interior décor and wall finishing details.
The staircase was to serve as the dominant décor accent without appearing overly massive.
The ethereal openwork effect was achieved by carefully concealing all seams and joints on the brass banister. To that end the banister was crafted from solid brass sheets while the posts have a complex structure with a great number of components and concealed brass fittings.
The handrails were carved from oak, joined and painted in-situ.
