Last year just about every design website and magazine showed aset of stairs with storage built into each riser.

Holger Kehne and Eva Castro of London's Plasma Studio have done a very elegant version of the storage stair in their Esker Haus, a renovation and addition in San Candido, Italy. It has an exterior stair that is a killer, too.
