Hidden Stairs

Recently sustained economic downturn, the number of single-person households who are searching for jobs and placing themselves in big cities rapidly increases and micro apartments that can enjoy life at a reasonable cost are growing rapidly in new residential culture. However, the space of the micro apartment is limited. The concept of this stairs is "built-in slide stairs" entering the wall. Usually the stairs are fixed outside the wall. However, if you are not using the stairs, you can use the wider space by putting stairs in the wall. And if the user needs a stairway, you can take out and use the staircase on the wall at any time.
