Design: Aquilialberg design + architecture
Grassi Pietre was commissioned by the Architect to produce and install the main staircase of this exclusive villa in Cannes, named “La Jungle du Roi”, a house characterised by the presence of lots of crystals, chandeliers and mirrors, combinations of black, grey and white tones.
The material selected for the staircase was Bianco Perla, an off-white limestone, light and compact with a fine grain, in a honed finish.
The whole structure was conceived to be produced in several elements and assembled on site. The main baluster is perforated with a pattern in the shape of lilies.
Steps with bullnose detail, emptied columns ingeniously hide all cables, and LEDs run under the railings.
The large independent columns and capitols are made of solid stone.
This villa is much more than just a home: along with the bars, swimming pool, in-house cinema, sauna, corporate meetings that take place in a shiny circus cage, all areas decorated with plenty of art and caged exotic animals reproductions.
