    The most dangerous staircases in the world. Beautiful, but very few of these would pass building code.

  6. mj

  7. FrenzyHunter

    The bookshelves one is great. I’d love to have one like that, but I need to get an extra floor first.

    Great Collection!!!
    Some are really unique, especially Hidden Door Staircase, Alternating Tread Stairs & Ribbon Staircase.
    the Slide would make my day!

  20. Kirvi Inci

    Two questions:
    1: Are the slide steps fat ass approved?
    2: Where an I find the guy to build one?

  21. JK III

    Minimal, Bookshelf, glass and slide ones are the best.

  22. jl

    they look cool but also a bit dangerous.

  23. HeapsGoodProductions

  24. Jaqi Mugo

    SLIDES! :D

  25. latincrow

    i need that secret door to a lab where i do my…..you know..nevermind

  26. I Stare @ U'r Stairs

    No banisters ?…an accident (or lawsuit) waiting to happen…

    Slides look fun tho :)

  27. Manish Ahuja

    Like always, Toxel manages to find some of the best, most innovative ideas. Amazing post.

  28. Manuela

    2/3rds of there pose a serious OH+S risk…

  29. Dietrich

    Good luck with walking down the stairs for a glass of water during the middle of the night

  30. Danielle Steelle

    What ever happened to building code safety regulations?

  31. Will

    a lot of these are really cool, but the alternating tread one is the single most useless thing I have ever seen. It doesn’t save ANY space, and you would have to put waaaaay too much thought into using them.

  32. Amy

    Wow! Love the ones that attach on only one side. So modern and retro.

  33. trolololol

    the alternating tred one would suck to have to walk downstairs in the morning, also im a lefty so the entire staircase is bacwards for me lol. the other ones are EPIC, though. the ribbon one is kinda frighting lol :D

  34. meee

    what if you were lifting something heavy up the stairs that kinda look like they are floating.. and it just broke?? but i really like the slide stairs and i think they would be really fun! you could just spend hours on that thing!!

  35. meee

    i think i would get confused with the ribbon because the black ones dont even look straight!

  36. meee

    i just realized that i am extremely scared of staircases ecspecially the ones with no railing and no toe tick thing like what if u were wearing socks on the glass ones and u totally slipped… that would hurt

  37. Trine

    I would just LOOOOVE a hidden door stair! :D

  38. mitchell

    omg like the staircase and slide one

  39. Anny

    The bookcase stairway is a great storage idea…I’m definately having it done in my new home.
