Umschreibung: Art form at its best in Germany

Have you seen this amazing piece of work? This “infinity staircase” has caught my attention.

The infinity staircase, designed by Ólafur Elíasson and called Umschreibung (Rewriting), was completed in 2004.


Ólafur Elíasson (born 1967) is a Danish-Icelandic artist known for sculptures and large-scale installation art employing elemental materials such as light, water, and air temperature to enhance the viewer’s experience.


This beautiful merging of art and architecture is a 9 meter-high walk-double spiral of steel in the entrance of the KPMG ( a global accounting firm ) office building in Munich, Germany.


The employees at KPMG very fortunate to have such a work of art to inspire them. I feel like walking up and down it just to experience it 🙂
