Designed and made for the Headquarters of bespoke manufacturers, Touch Design Group, the 30mph staircase provides a central feature for the offices, linking the showroom with the mezzanine drawing studio above.
Sat behind a vast glazed frontage the bright yellow staircase, which acts as a signpost for the company, has been purposely designed to be both visible and noticed at 30mph from the street outside. The staircase has been constructed on site by Touch using a 4 axis CNC cutter to mill a bespoke laminate of colour core formica and 40mm birch ply.
