Whenever I start climbing or descending a staircase designed by Italian architect Carlo Scarpa I automatically slow down… I want to linger in the moment. To touch the materials. To meditate over the perfection of form. How often do you walk up the stairs and immediately feel a need to try it again? You can actually experience the essence of movement when climbing Scarpa stairs!
