Inside the Atrium office tower in Tel Aviv, Israel, a sculptural staircase bends and swoops, creating a fluidity within the open-air office building. Created by Tomer Gelfand, the poplar wood forms nest around the staircase and around the second floor viewing balcony.
The wood was cut using a CNC machine to create the modular curved forms which were then assembled onsite. Before installation, Gelfand used simulation software to create a digital model showing how the form would appear within the entrance hall that was designed by Israeli architect, Oded Halafusing. The Atrium project was the largest that Gelfand has created to date.
