The three-part installation was made from oak and black steel in Meijers workshop in Eindhoven. This design with an industrial but elegant aesthetic is inspired by the black and white photographs by Berndt and Hilla Becher. The couple photographed industrial buildings in the 1950s. The staircase contrasts with the light blue walls and subdued colors in the living area.

Object élevé has two parts: a sturdy lower part with a desk and a hidden cabinet behind it and a light, suspended upper part consisting of open frames used as shelves. The construction is based on the Samba step principle. They are steep, but still safe and easy to walk on.
