Architect designs a staircase with curves that hypnotize the eyes using digital fabrication.

London-based architect Alex Haw is known for the unconventional results for his designs. His interest in the intersection of architecture with art, space, and time have led him to create some highly imaginative work and perspectives on his craft.

These remarkable stairs were done for a residential project for a gardener. According to the Atmos Studio site:

“The stair was entirely digitally fabricated using an intricate set of simply-cut but highly-detailed flat-pack elements, CNC-carving sheets  and oak directly from our drawings, engraving depths to further split structural strands into ever-finer lineaments, producing elements that perfectly slot together like an architectural jigsaw. The pieces assemble into a highly-articulated, economic and sculptural 3-dimensional space that appears to be constantly changing as one travels through it.”
