H3: "Wind Swirl" Contemporary Metal Stair Railings

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

Didsbury, Manchester

The curvilinear lines within these contemporary steel stair railings were made by forging the metal. This was hammered whilst hot, shaping it into the sweeping and flowing curves which make up the railings.

The joinery of the railings was used as a design feature. Rather than being welded, the bars were connected using ballnuts and hot punched holes. The spacers are copper and bronze; these metals were chosen to contrast with the tones of the forged steel.

The stair railings shown on this page have a similar design but with smaller gaps, whilst these railings use simpler welded joinery.
