Sexy stair Saturday took a break for a couple of Saturday’s, but is back with some amazing images. When it comes to statement staircases, there aren’t many who can match Eva Jiricna’s sinuous steel and glass creations. In grad school, I was given a monograph on Eva Jiricna and was blown away at the detail and precision with which she created staircases.
Jiricna, an architect who’s made interior spaces her speciality, somehow manages to combine aesthetics with engineering, industrial heft with imaginative fancy. Her staircases have a formal sculptural quality but they also sweep and flow. They’re delicate, but also solidly functional. It’s a fine balancing act, and one she’s made her signature theme. She’s even written a book on the subject: Staircases.
With that, please enjoy these images in this episode of Sexy Stair Saturday….
