Very interesting decision to illuminate a staircase was proposed by lighting company PSLAB. They have created lighting design for a spiral staircase in Beirut home (Lebanon). The main peculiarity of this lighting composition is its location. The rectangular holes with lamps inside are mounted right in the back sides of the steps of the staircase. So if we look in the staircase from the base it is a feeling like we are inside of some flying saucer or a spacecraft. The fact that this spiral staircase has no rails and the back sides of the steps are lit makes this composition look futuristic. It’s a new idea in design of staircases when illumination is an essential part of the design itself.
Australian studio Robert Mills Architects has completed Toorak House in Australia. Robert Mills is renowned for innovative modern urban designs. The philosophy of this project from the outset was to create a luxurious contemporary family home. Designers used contrast of white, dark brown and black colors and high-end materials. Spiral staircase, linking the ground floor to the first and second levels, provides a striking sculptural element that contrasts with the cubic character of the interior. In the courtyard you’ll find a small pool and a cozy relaxation area. There is nothing superfluous in the home design, it is the epitome of good taste and luxury.
