Genetic Stair featured in Design Bureau magazine

If ever someone endeavored to build Led Zepplin’s legendary “Stairway to Heaven,” there’s a good chance they’d ask Caliper Studio to do the work. The Brooklyn-base company–founded by Columbia University graduates Stephen Lynch and Jonathan Taylor and their friend and colleague, sculptor Michael Conlon–has had its hand in more than a dozen feature staircases and is fast garnering a reputation for pushing the envelope in ways that seem to defy the laws of physics.
