H95 Metal Stair Railings Inspired by Nature and Natural Forms

"... stylish, elegant, and bespoke metalwork ..."

Didsbury, Manchester 2017

These spectacular, vibrant and exuberant metal stair railings were commissioned by clients with a passion for botanical and natural forms. The brief called for railings that would add a "wow factor" to the otherwise unprepossessing stairs leading to their attic conversion.

The railings' design was inspired by youthful and inquisitive seedlings with emerging tendrils and leaves that appear to explore their surroundings as they rapidly grow. The textured steel handrail sweeps and flows into the truncated wooden stair post and is entwined by the branches and stems of the rails to form a bold and dramatic feature newel post.

Traditional blacksmithing techniques were used to forge the railings creating a palette of rich tones and textures that was enhanced by the burnished and waxed finish.
