news blog Bisca take Best Product Design at Northern Design Awards 2015

We were proud to accept the award for Best Product Design at the Northern Design Awards 2015

This particular staircase, made for a Shippon in Devon, has been a great favourite with clients, editors and judges and also won the Best Joinery Product award at the 2015 Build it Awards.

Our client had some very nice words to say about her new staircase including the product design aspect:

“I have high standards and very definite ideas of what I wanted, so when we were presented with the preliminary plans and drawings I was amazed to find myself loving every single aspect of them.

Richard had understood my vision; he stood for some time in a dark, filthy cowshed and absorbed the feel and potential of the space. He dwelt on the characteristics of a beam that bounded the stairwell area and made its natural curve the starting point of his design.

This crooked old beam, full of woodworm, studded with rusty ironwork and with patches of bark still adherent after hundreds of years, is now at the heart of a stunning helical staircase built from huge chunks of characterful English oak adorned with hand forged iron; the sympathetic juxtaposition of old and new is to our minds perfect”.

The staircase is of green oak, forged uprights and a leather handrail. For more details of this staircase please contact our sales team and quote reference 3826. Alternatively see further details in our staircase gallery.
