Stunning Staircase

With over 600 pieces of curved steel Wilkinson Eyre’s spiral staircase in London’s Wellcome Collection was one of the most complex bending projects undertaken by Angle Ring.

The concept of the dynamic helical stair was to create a free-flowing form, travelling from floor to floor without any visually intrusive supports and the £1.1million steel and glass spiral staircase does this elegantly, linking the foyer space to first floor galleries, and second floor library.

Steel was the only realistic option for the stair with its strength, stiffness and its readiness to be worked into complex forms and Angle Ring used a mixture of pressing, cold rolling and a bespoke process created for this contract to form and twist the large steel plates required.

The inner balustrade and soffit of the stair were formed from 8 and 10mm thick mild steel plate with 25mm thick internal ribs which were 4 axis plasma cut by S M Thompson of Middlesbrough.
