An all-glass stair has treads (steps), a stringer (diagonal support) and a rail of glass. While this stair is actually cantilevered from a support (likely a piece of steel) hidden in the wall, the stair is essentially all glass.
Because of its transparency, the staircase seems to float, blocking neither light nor view. And in many ways it becomes, with its lightness and transparency, an ethereal, contemporary sculpture.
