Combining elegance and engineering, the cantilevered staircase system by RoomStone® GmbH takes minimalism to a new level. Launched in the UK by Kevala Stairs at the Southern Homebuilding & Renovation Show in Sandown Park, the RoomStone® cantilevered staircase system enjoyed a very favourable reception. It is not only visually intriguing, appearing to defy gravity, but also extremely versatile being suitable for both internal and external construction.
The architectural design showcases German engineering at its best. The treads, fixed only at one end, appear to ‘float’ in mid-air, projecting from the wall with no visible support. The secret is in the engineering, with structural support hidden within the specially constructed wall and within each tread. The impression of a floating structure can be enhanced by incorporating cleverly positioned lighting. A unique feature of this design is that the cantilevered treads are exchangeable, allowing for a completely new look in future years.
A range of balustrading designs ensures that the minimalist effect is not compromised. This cantilevered staircase design can be used to create very varied effects, depending on the architectural space for which it is intended. Treads are available in beautifully grained hardwoods, intricate metal designs and in smooth concrete: either cool and polished, or textured for a rustic effect.
A unique feature of this staircase is that the cantilevered treads are exchangeable, allowing for a completely new look in future years. A true cantilevered staircase is a design where each tread is fixed only at one end. The supporting structure is hidden within each tread and behind the face of the wall. There are no supports between the treads.
