A picture may be worth a thousand words, but we think that this fascinating staircase made out picture frames is priceless. Unveiled by UK designer Stuart Haygarth at the Victoria and Albert Museum for London Design Week, the installation uses 600 meters of frame supplied by John Jones Art Framers.

The off-cut pieces of picture frames used were cut, mitred, joined, sanded and painted to create a provocative surprise for people entering the V&A. We’re absolutely floored by the well-thought out and dramatic way they were brought to life using simple repetition and color.
