Banister-Bending Staircases take Handrails to New Heights

This extreme pair of staircases represents two unique, asymmetrical works of functional art – each is installed in an actual London home, but based on three-dimensional computermodeling and created using laser-cut materials.

Everything about these designs by architect Alex Haw of Atmos is warped, bent and twisted, from the treads and risers up through the balusters and banisters.

I wouldn’t want to be drunk and have to walk up these stairs! Or down for that matters. But I sure as h*ll like the design!
