Highly Original Spiraling Staircase with Integrated Lighting by .PSLAB
A collaboration between .PSLAB and architect Bernard Khoury led to the implementation of this highly original staircase in a residence in Beirut, Lebanon. The spiraling steps are further continued towards the ceiling with a light installation that illuminates the interior and adds personality: “An imposing insertion was made in the shape of a ceiling mounted fixture composed of hanging channels reaching out from the ceiling in a circular manner identical to the staircase. The lighting installation hangs from a partially recessed supporting plate with extruded profiles that serve to firmly set the vertical channels. These channels vary in length, giving the impression of an ascending structure”. No matter what the standpoint, this stairway found on design milk looks imposing and spectacular. The sculptural installation not only brings light and function to the interior, it also comes with a modern artistic touch, increasing the visual appeal of an otherwise neglected part of the house.
