Modern lighting for a spiral staircase
Beirut is the last place I would thought that had one of the most interesting pieces in design and lighting fixtures. I’m expecting to see all sorts of innovative things in Milan or Paris but not in Lebanon. Now that I have these images in front of me, I will no longer start to look at things with preconceived ideas.If it’s not clear yet, I am talking about this marvelous lighting fixture above the spiral staircase made out by .PSLAB. I love the idea because a spiral staircase needs something special to go with it and to alternate. Surrounded by square rooms and straight lines this staircase needed something to complement it and most of all its shape.
I don’t think I would have thought about a lighting fixture to be the thing that goes with the stairs but know that I have seen it, looks pretty natural and very harmoniously converging towards a center core. I love the way each arm descends a little bit with each step of the stairs, keeping a very high degree of illumination upon all the steps.
I also like the way everything looks and if you look up from the base everything appears to be united and to climb high in the sky in and endless spiral. The frame is painted in the same color as the staircase is and the rectangular holes from which light come out look like the individual steps; like a more dangerously continuation of the wooden stairs with no rails to put your hands on, nothing; just steps towards the sky.
