‘Tree’ Spiral Staircase from Zigzag
'Our designs provoke a reaction'
Headed by designer Nick Burborough, Zigzag Studios are turning staircases and balustrading into works of art. Their latest offering is ‘Tree’ (top). Cast from a real tree trunk and branch the components create this truly unique and beautiful spiral staircase.
It is finished off with ‘Thorn’, a bestselling sculptural balustrade from their range of over 40 designs. Their products are made to order or you can commission them to design and make your dream structure.
Zigzag Design Studio are an exciting, dynamic design and make company based in Oxfordshire, and are doing something quite special with staircases
Headed by designer Nick Burborough, they have designed and made a stunning range of over 40 sculptural balustrades, and are steadily growing a range of equally beautiful staircases.
‘Our designs provoke a reaction, we are turning structures into works of art, centre pieces for the home’ says Burborough, who studied furniture design in Nottingham before going on to be the first head designer at the now renowned Philip Watts Design, and subsequently setting up his own studio in 2000. ‘We have made staircases for years now and we were being increasingly asked if we could give staircases a ‘facelift’, but there is nothing on the market to do that with if you want to achieve a really stunning, high end look, so we had to design something, which ended up being our range of sculptural balustrading.’ (middle). Zigzags spindles can be fitted to new or existing staircases with ease, inside or out, and the results are eye catching and truly beautiful.
As well as balustrading Zigzag are constantly adding to their range of sculptural staircases, like their ‘Tree’ spiral and ‘Spine’ (bottom), a component staircase that creates a spine like structure to support its steps.
