Garbage Architecture: Stairs by Jan Korbes

After the abuse we took last week for the Loft in Space stair, we present our stair of the week, built by Jan Korbes. He and his associates call themselves "Garbage Architects" and "operate on the borders of architecture, engineering, and design and create new products from old materials. Origin for designs are found in the material itself, by listening to its own composition, history, or local and social context."

The Stairs Schloss Wiesenburg are "stairs in the shape of add-on boxes supporting itself as a constructed, empty beam. Materials are recovered antique floor wood and construction wood from the castle." Built in cooperation with Judith van der Meer. ::Garbage Architecture via ::Materialicious
