Apart from the undoubted benefits of this ladder is also in such important conditions, such as easy installation, ease of use, small amount of required maintenance and low cost of production and installation.
Given the originality and the apparent usefulness of this concept it is not surprising that he won in the category of "Place of public use" in the annual design competition of the Design Zentrum Nordhein Westfalen, Essen conducted by the Institute. So let's hope that these wonderful stairs will gradually replace the traditional and allows people to feel more comfortable.
