There are many rules for stairs and different rules for different situations. I wanted to make stairs where safety obligations are part of the design and construction instead of being added only out of safety reasons. I used tension forces to position the steps between steal cables. Due a slit in the step they get clamped between the two cables. The shape that gets created by the crossing cables are part of the construction as well functioning as handrail and safety net.
