120 Cables

wp-image

A grand helical staircase created by Agence Nicolas Michelin & Associes for the National Libary in Strassbourg
coiling around 8.10 m radius was built in segments. Once landings were attached to the concrete floors, the flights of stairs were soldered by sections on the spot, before being hoisted up to 12 meters. The whole staircase was then hung at 27.5 meters from the square base of the dome’s spire by 120 brushed steel cables. Its shape was obtained by installing a circular ring at the confluence point of two conical revolutions.

Elegance

A suspended steel staircase has a wonderful and strong visual impact. The steel cables that are used to sustain the stairs are simple and elegant and the stairs seem to be floating. This is a design that is both safe and stylish. And even though usually steel staircases tend to have an industrial feel, in this case all they transmit is elegance.

Aisthesis – the origin of sensations

wp-image

Villa panza celebrated the ingenuity of renowned american artists robert irwin and james turrell with an exhibition entitled ‘aisthesis – the origin of sensations‘. a total of 19 works — encompassing projections, installations and sensory environments — have been integrated into the spaces of the italian villa-turned-gallery-space. two new works created by irwin and turrell had been sited specifically for the exhibition: turrell’s ganzfeld ‘sight unseen’ and irwin’s ‘varese scrim’. ‘sight unseen’ has seen the gallery’s main stable block transform into an emotive, endless landscape, whereas ‘varese scrim’ creates an immersive labyrinth shaped by natural light.

Smooth soffit

wp-image

Japanese architect, Furmihiko Maki has a minimalist approach with clean lines and white throughout. Eventscape was contracted to develop a solution for the underside of a curving feature staircase. The complex curved shape of the stair soffit was mapped digitally and 3D modeled to define and achieve the desired form. The clean white finish desired by the designers was accomplished by utilising segmented lofted aluminium panels which were filled, finished and polished by hand to a final smooth finish at The Aga Khan Museum of Islamic arts via Eventscape.

Pattern and form

wp-image

by Architects Hagy Belzberg and Joan Behkne remake Gores Group. Behnke’s interest in pattern and form is evident in gestures small and grand. “Computer modeling facilitates design at all different scales,” he says. The staircase, a composition of complex curves with chamfered edges, has limestone treads, lit by LEDs, and a curvaceous guardrail of cerused-ash slats. It’s a seductive connector. So much so that most staffers bypass the cylindrical glass elevator, which ascends and descends alongside a carved cerused-oak screen wall. “When I was in Italy, I saw a centuries-old marble facade that was punctured and curved,” Behnke says of the inspiration for one of the patterns in the screen’s evolving surface via Interior Design.
