Artistic Spiral Staircases

Fall has come early. With back-to-school and other activities, my work and projects and some studying (all me) and now the kids sick with different ailments, I have fallen a little behind with my posts.

Here are some spiral staircases which are works of art. All quite amazing but I would question the functionality of a couple. Perhaps they are meant to be just art.

A focal point, centered in this space.

Space-saving design. I love the pop of color, too.

Beautifully done in metal.

An interesting creation. To me it almost mimics the spine of a prehistoric animal because of some aspect of the curve and to some degree the shape of the treads - does anyone else get that? I could almost envision this on display in the Museum of Natural History. The treads look like they could be slippery with almost invisible handrails.

I love the effect of the light within this sweeping staircase.

This work of art can be enjoyed on  two levels.

Modern and decorative.

Minimalistic. A barely-there staircase.

This one seems suspended in the air. I think this one is really meant to be a form of art. The treads do  not seem functional to me. What do you think?

I think my favorites would be the first one and the sweeping one with the amazing light. Which one would you pick?
