Cells™ by EeStairs

Cells™ stairs by EeStairs is an exclusive innovation that combine art and geometry in an unexpected way. The organic, flowing, and open-weave design of Cells™ steel balustrades originate from computer-generated Voroni patterns.

As a result, no two Cells™ balustrades are the same. The balustrades constitute a strong and integrated structure with stringers, stair treads, and/or floor edges.

Designers can choose the density and shape of the cells. For example, polygons, bubble patterns, or a range of cell sizes can be chosen to create balustrades with a monumental, delicate, or elegant feel.

Customizing Cells™ stairs

Cells™ stairs can be customized in the same way as EeStairs customizes similar types of stairs. The balustrades with Cells™ structure can seamlessly and securely be attached to steel stringers, floor edges, and both metal and wood stair treads.

Aside from the steel balustrades having irregularly shaped polygonal cells or bubble patterns, they can be factory-painted in any RAL-color or given different patination treatments. Designers can specify the size of the cells, for example: smaller cells at the base of a balustrade that flow into larger, more open cells or an array of small and medium-sized cells to create a more monumental appearance.

Cells™ stairs can also be designed and made as a ‘double-act’: a glass, wood, or solid metal balustrade on one side of the treads, and a Cells™ balustrade on the other.

Because Cells™ balustrades are made of steel, designers can specify a tighter radius on the stringers without detracting from the strength of the stair structure.

FAQs
Can I specify a type of cell pattern, such as angular or circular?

Yes, EeStairs can produce almost any form of Voroni cell patterns.

What’s the geometry behind Voroni?

Voroni diagrams are produced by randomly placed points on a plane, which generates asymmetric cells.

Is every Cells™ balustrade unique?

Yes, every Cells™ pattern is generated at random.

What are the Cells™ balustrades made of?

The Cells™ balustrades are made of steel.

What colors can I choose?

EeStairs can apply any of the 200-plus RAL colours.

Can the Cells™ balustrades be curved?

Yes, and in addition, relatively tight radiuses are possible.

Installing Cells™ stairs

The installation of staircases with Cells™ balustrades is straightforward and has no cost premium. They are installed in the exact same way as EeStairs installs all its other types of stairs.

Applications

Cells™ stairs are ideal for domestic, commercial, and office interiors where the designer wants a staircase that combines elegance, sturdiness, and wow-factor. EeStairs has produced and installed Cells™ stairs in stylish homes in countless cities, including Paris, London, and Moscow. In Amsterdam, EeStairs produced and installed a multi-stage Cells™ office staircase at Schiphol Airport.

The unique aesthetics of Cells™ balustrades along with their steel structure makes them perfect to use at the edges of floors, such as the perimeters of atriums, stairwells, and patios, to make a strong design statement.
