It's not often that a designer can have total free play to do what he or she wants without the inputs of the client. But things can take on a huge change when the client engages an artist to design a space instead - someone who doesn't necessarily need to place function before form.

Artist Vincent Dubourgh took on that 'challenge' - he had been given free reign to create a staircase for a private art collector with a house in Knightsbridge. One can't be blamed for being startled at the 'havoc' Dubourgh created inside. The aluminium branch-like poles 'ripped' through the timber floor, enveloping the scarily twisted staircase structure like a scene out of a Tim Burton's movie. Indeed, one couldn't have imagined climbing up the stairs could be such a dramatic affair.

its really wonderful when clients keep an open mind to embrace wild & wacky but highly artistic design interpretations...truly refreshing to see this!! hope clients can do less dictating to their designers and let their artistry flow

This is crazy. The client took a bold step forward with that.
