Disguincio&co | Folio
Folio is a spiral staircase where all the main features are embedded in a single module: there is no difference between form, structure and aesthetic, the iteration of the monolithic fiber-reinforced composites step, designs a spiral curve in space, the force line of the staircase. Each component supports the previous and the next, the only variation would occur in the top and bottom pieces that connect to landings. Behind the simplicity of the single component, the whole becomes a complex system to articulate a special effect.

The Crimean Pinecone Lamp consists of 56 (42) plates and screws held without an internal frame. Light passes through gaps between the rounded forms of the plaques, which are slightly transparent themselves. This creates a special ambient pattern of light from the outside, while still exuding a practical downward-directed brightness. The lamp, which comes in a flat pack, has a natural wood veneer (beech), which further emphasizes the Crimean Pinecone’s fusion of nature and technology.
