The handrail along the side walls were custom-made by Five Star Metals. www.fivestarmetals.com. The stair itself and steel plate stringer/guardrail was built by a team lead by the general contractor, Roberts Wygal http://robertswygal.com/ John DeForest

Just beautiful. It looks like fabric in the picture. It's rigid enough? Has it held up well?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

John Hill added this to Artful Stairs: Continuity in Steel
... the stairs have more opacity. Note that these steps span from the solid steel guardrail in the center of the stair to the adjacent wall, without any intermediate support.
Eric Reinholdt added this to Design Workshop: Getting a Feel for Steel
The architect here created a light-filled stair tower by using thin folded plates of steel to support the perforated metal treads. The folding reinforces the stair assembly and doubles as a guardrail — and makes the stair an art object.

wow; Folding. Altering the shape of steel can expand its spanning capability. Similar to the Roman arch, the shape here distributes the loads more efficiently. Because the thin plates comprising this cantilevered stair are folded, they're rigid enough to span large distances.
