This amazing staircase designed by Andrew McConnell, based on the concept of whale’s backbone, by making a single component that has a spiral form of whale’s vertebra.  The vertebrae represent the handrail, each vertebra is joined with a step. Vertebrae are made from steel and engaged to each other making a goodrigid and self-supporting structure.

“There are no other hidden supports as the Vertebrae Staircase is designed to act as one structural element, bearing the loads of its users and transferring these forces to the floor plates.” said the designer.

More description from the designer: Inspired by the spine of a whale, the Vertebrae Staircase is not simply mimicry of organic form but an exploration in shaping structure. Much of the design work went into refining the single component, or vertebra, that mate with each other creating a unified spine running from floor plate to floor plate. These interlocking vertebrae provide a rigid structure for the steps, railing and its users. And the railing is reinforced by connections that help the staircase resist rotational forces caused by the cantilevered steps.
