Floating Stairs

An interesting tidbit about the NeXT corporate offices:

The architectural centerpiece was a “floating” staircase with no visible supports

I’d be curious to know if this had any influence on the glass staircases used in the modern-day Apple stores such as the 5th Ave store in New York. Perhaps Mr. Jobs was fond of those stairs when he was at NeXT.
