We recently received photos and information about the tailor-made Fontanot staircase connecting the two floors of the new Scavolini flagship store in the Soho district of New York at West Broadway 429, one of the most prestigious addresses in Manhattan. Here is an excerpt from the press release we were sent: Inside the brand-new store, the Fontanot staircase, designed by the American architectural studio Space Architects, brings together two highly versatile materials: steel and glass. Each tread is made up of four 10-mm layers of Madras crystal separated by a red film that creates a play of color with a beautiful visual effect. The railings, also in crystal, are embellished with a stainless steel handrail.
The treads of the Fontanot staircase could be also an unusual meeting place where managers, artists, design enthusiasts and lovers of Made in Italy stopped to chat. Scavolini and Fontanot, two of the biggest names in Italian quality, have joined forces to export the design and uniqueness of products created by the unbeatable Italian genius. Just like the famous Scavolini kitchens, Fontanot staircases are a blend of tradition and innovation that not only satisfy your functional requirements, but also allow you to furnish your home with a very personal style.
