The stair riser is made with frosted plexiglass and the area behind the riser is painted white to help diffuse the light evenly throughout the whole riser. In this case, the stair riser detail was constructed pre-LED everything and the light source utilized here is a custom made cold-cathode fixture. For a project like this today you may wish to consider LED. Both LED and Cold Cathode are energy efficient with extremely long lamp life. Good luck with your projects - dSPACE Studio
