Escaliers en rotin

Creation : Joseph Grappin escaliers en rotin
Design Ingeneering / Manufacturing / Fitting :  Métalobil
Customer : Accor Hotels


The architect Joseph Grappin imagined an organic staircase with a ramp transformed into seats. Métalobil used rattan as the best material to realize this original shape.


Aside from the ramp, another seat has the shape of a comma.



Métalobil re-used the former staircase: the steps were polished and varnished.

The two benches are made of 20 mm diameter rattan stems, fireproofed, varnished finition and fixed to CNC cut plywood sheets which create the shape of the objects.
