This staircase evokes the structure of a backbone, and each step one of its vertebrae. 14 landings phase the complex structure of this piece. The staircase is composed of seven segments and it is developed around a steel net. The steps and the landings are connected by an attachment system embedded into the elements. Each element is covered with a thin non-slip surface.
