Drawing on the history of 20th century furniture and focusing on craftsmanship and detailing, designer Alexander Lervik has created a collection of stairs that celebrates our history and explores the boundaries around what we call furniture.

The Hemvist collection is a tribute to Drömtrappor, to our history and our craftsmanship, while at the same time exploring the boundaries of what we consider to be a piece of furniture. The Hemvist collection is not only a new product for us at Drömtrappor; the design allows for individual steps to be easily replaced when they wear out, which is a completely new technology in the staircase industry.

– The first time I visited Dream Staircases, I actually got goosebumps when I saw the incredible craftsmanship that takes place in the factory as well as the high level of professionalism among their employees. It was thanks to them that I figured out how to make Hemvist a flexible staircase that can be customized and put into mass production at the same time. The fact that most of the wood comes from the forests in the area makes Drömtrappor a great company to work with, says Alexander.

The name, Hemvist, which is the Swedish word for home, was chosen to embody the sense of warmth and comfort we hope to evoke in those who experience our staircases. Wood was the natural choice for Hemvist, as it possesses a unique combination of qualities that make it the perfect material for this purpose. Its organic nature imbues it with a sense of life and vitality, while its pliability allows for intricate and elegant designs. Its strength and durability ensure that it will stand the test of time, and its smoothness provides a pleasant tactile experience.

We believe that a staircase is so much more than just a functional element in a home, rather it is something that can enhance the aesthetics and experience of your home. With Hemvist, we aim to create staircases that are not only beautiful and functional but also imbued with a sense of warmth and pays attention to details, making them a true joy to live alongside for many years to come.
