Stair Porn

 

A Blog Exclusively For Stiars

Stairs. Rarely does this word spark excitement. Sometimes if your lucky, these passages to other levels create memorable journeys, other times, it's just about getting from point A to point B.  The latter is when we ask the question "…where's the elevator?".

Moving people is its sole purpose, pretty simple.  To designers and architects though, stairs are quite complex puzzles. Materials and construction have to be 'just right', if not they will have you tripping - and not in a fun way.

When Architects and Designers get it 'just right'  they stop us dead in our tracks. Not because of how many steps there are, but purely because they have created a work of art.  These monumental staircases are Stair Porn worthy. 

This site is great for day dreamers. It delivers endless content for people with an obsessive interest in design. Whenever they come across a noteworthy staircase, they post it. 

Bookmarked on our web browsers for years, we thought it was time to share.

FYI
If your building has five floors or less, take the stairs.  Studies have shown office workers save up to 15 mins a day by not taking the elevator. - From StepJockey
