Atmos Studio has completed a monumental staircase made from laminated oak that weaves as the centerpiece of the Oliver Dabbous’s recently opened 3-storey HIDE restaurant in Mayfair, London. The stair’s design creates a plant-like structure that grows like an irrepressible life-force from beneath, bursting from the shadows of the basement towards the daylight above.
It twists upwards, spiralling energetically like a corkscrew, steps unfurling seamlessly from the structural stem-like leaves, while further branches similarly delaminate to form a delicate wavy balustrade guiding the guests carefully upwards. “StairStalk” finally unfurls at the 1st floor level, as if reuniting with its vast family of arboreal brethren in Green Park opposite – nestling just beyond the full-height panoramic glazing fronting Piccadilly.
