Milan has long been seen in many circles as a city sitting at the summit of international style and fashion. Entering this glamorous arena the designs and ideas from Italian house Francesco Librizzi studio do well to stand out. This metal staircase designed for House C, a Milanese house initially built in 1900, is a great example of their classic meets modernist style.
The black steel contrasts wonderfully well with the white walls for a striking monochrome effect. Before work begun on the property, the apartment contained just two rooms. However, during renovation Librizzi was able to add a mezzanine bedroom beneath the ceilings. The effect, crowned by the staircase, is a wonderfully smart creation.
