Fold is a privately commissioned custom balustrade, produced in 2009 to compliment an existing staircase with cantilevered treads.

Rather than a purely functional balustrade the client expressed a desire for a sculpture that would form the core of their 2 level penthouse apartment.

The work is fabricated from 10 mm steel in a matte black finish, with a pattern that varies in scale to accentuate the form as it folds into the space.

The textures and forced perspective effects of the resulting artwork coupled with the “float” of the stairs make for a dynamic experience as visitors enter the home.
