I'll be honest; these stairs don't look safe. I know they look cool but how cool would you look hugging the wall all the way up? I'd be petrified. And what a spot to park your laptop!
This staircase was designed by Jordi Vayreda of Spain for a real-life client who now has the floating stairs in his or her real-life home.
I'd be interested to know if the staircase has some sort of weight limit. Any physics whiz kids out there care to comment on how you'd have to build stairs like these to support the weight of a grown adult? I'd imagine you'd have to make sure they could support close to 300 pounds just to be on the safe side. I'm over 200 pounds and I'd still get queasy every time I had to make such a climb.
