Nine times out of ten, you don’t give a second thought to stairs (the tenth time you’re drunk and have to navigate carefully to avoid an embarrassing tumble). But what if a staircase could be more than a convenient way to move vertically or a post-alcohol obstacle course?

Take a scroll through the inspiring designs and don’t forget to watch your step.
