Metal Staircase by Francesco Librizzi Studio

This metal staircase stopped me in my tracks when I saw it. Designed by Francesco Librizzi Studio, it sits in House C, a 1900s house in Milan that still has many original details. The staircase takes up little space in the small room and leads to a loft-like sleeping area.

I love the black steel against the stark white walls. It adds a sculptural element to the room with its lines and geometry. What a way to think outside the box when it comes to ladders and staircases!

It kinds of reminds us of the Spaces, Etc. exhibition we just featured by Ron Gilad.
