We've been inspired by Jim Lambie before on Apartment Therapy - our posts on his installations at MoMA and the Museum of Fine Arts showed him creating his signature patterns on floors and walls, respectively. Today we look at some stairs given the Lambie treatment...
...entitled "Zobop (Metallic Color Stairs)" from 2005.
The stairway patterns take on a completely different feel from his expansive flooring projects, where Lambie creates the movement and angles of the pattern at his discretion on a flat surface - here, the stripes are forced to follow the dimensions of the stairs.
If you like the look and are wondering whether this idea is truly DIY-able, check out Stephanie's kitchen - she did a Lambie-style installation to cover the existing "ugly cracked green linoleum".
