This awe-inspiring staircase is so much more than a way to travel through a home – it’s a work of art and illusion. Installed in a private home by Milan-based design and architecture firm Storage Associati, the staircase disappears when viewed from a certain angle.



The stairs are surrounded by metal strips of varying lengths. The strips are flat but wide, so when viewed from certain angles you can see the stairs clearly through them.



When you stand in other places, though, the staircase completely disappears behind the wide parts of the metal strips. It’s a gorgeous illusion that adds a major dramatic effect to the home’s interior.
