NY Primarily based Fabricator Marretti has simply launched Origami – their cantilevered, ultra-thin (8mm), Corten metal staircase system. Off-the-shelf stair programs are by no means this design-forward, by no means this minimal, by no means this mild. I’m actually wanting ahead to utilizing this in initiatives.
