  1. There is no question the stairs you put on this page are the best of the best of the 10 best article from davidthedesigner. Going to New York just to see these would make the trip worthwhile! AMAZING concept. But… I think the banister idea detracts from the exquisite design of the stairs. Too bad they didn’t carry out the wave motion concept in the banister. Anyway. WOW!!

  2. About the Absolut-article; don’t you mean “94 quintillion bottles before two IDENTICAL designs were produced” ?
