Convincing staircase sculpture

Outstanding craftsmanship

Since 2006 annually the stairs of the year are selected by Germanys specialized portal No. 1 for the building of stairs – Treppen.de. In this year an independent jury of four persons came together, consisting of an architect, a master carpenter, a master joiner and a specialized editor. After intensive discussions the technically competent jury from 419 submitted stairs of the 500 member enterprises of treppen.de decided on the winners in the 18 possible categories sculpture, design, elegance, architecture, striking, extravagance, transparency, innovation, function, modernity, straightness, tradition, timelessness, form language, trend, space concept, purism and ambiente.

Impressive steel staircase

MetallArt is again one of the winners in 2019 and was able to inspire the expert jury with its staircase in the category sculpture. In the end, several top-class stair constructions were available for this category sculpture. Particular attention was paid to the variety of materials, the railing construction, the staircase shape or type and the special craftsmanship. The staircases submitted by MetallArt had already emerged as winners in previous years. In 2017 they made it in the category architecture, in 2016 it was the category modernity.

Innovative stair architecture
Exceptional stair construction

For the 2019 competition, MetallArt submitted an impressive stringer staircase with smooth-surfaced soffit cladding in “Design MetallArt”. At the Hanau-based technology group Heraeus, the staircase is shown to its full advantage in its individual design and continues to inspire visitors again and again. “This three-level steel construction can quite rightly be described as a symbiosis of art and quality craftsmanship. It is above all the high creative standards behind this installation that makes this sculptural staircase stand out – and makes it a worthy prize winner,” says Tilo Hauck, business owner at T-K-Verlag.

The “Staircase of the Year” award is highly regarded on the German architecture scene. Both architects and building owners like to draw inspiration from the award-winning staircases for their future projects.
