Steps - 2014


We should learn to live more on staircases. But how?
-Georges Perec (The Species of Spaces)

Steps is an exploration into the idea of reinvention. By re-conceptualizing objects that were originally designed for one purpose, we find alternate or multiple uses. In stripping the stair of its more cultural and metaphorical meaning, and allowing the essential structure of the stair become both the practical and the aesthetic value, Steps re-orients us to the idea of the stair and how we use it. Steps transforms the staircase’s iconic form into multi-functional seating by incorporating a seat back to the second “tread.” In doing so, Steps form becomes both a seat with two end-tables and two seats with one end-table.
