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 Brass Workshop’s craftsmen took great pride in crafting this elegant brass openwork staircase in 2019. It was a project that demanded a harmonious fusion of aesthetics and engineering precision. The challenge lay in creating a staircase that exuded strength while maintaining a sense of lightness and transparency, in perfect alignment with the customer’s vision.
To meet these objectives, the core structure of the staircase was meticulously fashioned from 10mm thick sheet steel, employing the precision of water jet cutting. This steel framework served as the sturdy backbone of the staircase, providing the essential structural integrity required for safety and durability.
The choice of hard oak for the stairs themselves added a warm and inviting touch to the otherwise metallic elements. Craftsmen carefully handcrafted each step, ensuring not only functionality but also a seamless blend with the surrounding design.
However, the true pièce de résistance was the brass banister, designed to be in perfect harmony with the other brass elements gracing the interior decor and wall finishing details. The craftsmen meticulously forged, shaped, and polished the brass to achieve the desired blend of strength and elegance
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.
