Although by now we must be aware that the Japanese lifestyle is one based on minimal simplicity and self-reflection. And while this Super Thin staircase structure may look absurdly small to the rest of the world, it may not be that odd for what renters are used to in Japan. Talk about your ‘out of the box’ thinking…the Cherry Blossom is indeed a nice touch for this Japanse house.

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.

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.
