The Air Up There

How many times have you looked up in the sky and wished you could better utilize all the seemingly wasted space floating just over your head? With water levels rising all over the globe, creating the current popularity in horizontal Terra Firma surfaces, real estate is at a premium. Greek designer and New Amsterdam resident Jessie Lauren might have a solution that could take design to new heights. Her “Stairs” concept design was conceived to elevate our daily lives to new levels by means of a staggered set of vertically incremental flat surfaces, creating a bipedal conveyance system that allows for people to move from one plane of existence to another. Ms. Lauren believes this design can be both used for upward conveyance as well as downward. I believe this idea could have legs if she includes built in Wi-Fi for easy software updates.
