ACME has completed a staircase prototype combining modern methods of construction with an adaptive design approach, created to work with a minimum of intervention within any building. The solid timber stair was designed in 48 weeks, manufactured in four weeks and constructed in just 5 days, and has been installed on the ground floor of ACME's offices in London.
Inspired by Coco Chanel’s mirror stair in 31 Rue Cambon in Paris that enabled anyone perched at the top to observe the comings and goings on all levels of her atelier, two sides of the stair have been clad in mirrors to ensure the space of the stair is a visual as well as physical link
