Il Pit Stop per cambio gomme più rapido di cui si abbia memoria
April 8, 1933: For those who have visited London and wondered how they know their double-decker buses won’t fall over, this is apparently how they find out. Per police regulation, employees of the London General Omnibus Company put their 60-person bus to a “tilt test,” putting it on a 28-degree angle. Photo: The New York Times

Folio is a spiral staircase where all the main features are embedded in a single module: there is no difference between form, structure and aesthetic, the iteration of the monolithic fiber-reinforced composites step, designs a spiral curve in space, the force line of the staircase. Each component supports the previous and the next, the only variation would occur in the top and bottom pieces that connect to landings. Behind the simplicity of the single component, the whole becomes a complex system to articulate a special effect.
