Stairs to Envy…

13 Dec

"Scala" by Horst Gläsker (image via Hue)

These stairs are from “Scala”, a few-years-old installation piece in Wuppertal, Germany by artist and professor Horst Gläsker.   The stairs are dressed up in acrylic paint and the text is in German.  The words are evocative of the emotions surrounding different human relationships.

Just LOOK!  Sometimes photographs do a much better job extolling the virtues of a project than my words do…

Perfect! (Image via Hue)

I adore the contrast between urban grit and pure shocking color. (image via Hue)


We can’t all get to Germany to see these, or have them installed in our local park or backyard, but if you love the idea of stair brights then look to these slightly more attainable residential interior projects and see what you can come up with.  Enjoy!

Gorgeous and functional white stairs -- albeit slightly hazardous, due to lack of handrail. (image via Plastolux)
