The staircase has a total of 700 square meters of mosaic with more than 5 million hand-cut mosaic stones, all of which were baked and cut into unique mosaic tiles in a small village in Italy according to traditional methods. One by one, these tiles were laid by hand to form ‘The Stairway To Unity’. The stairs should symbolize unity. The impressive staircase is a collaboration between Tomorrowland’s creative team and some international artists such as Parisian mosaic expert Jean-Christophe Duperron, Cuban artist Michel Herrera Cuello and Italian company Mosaici Moruzzi.
The staircase will form the third permanent art installation in De Schorre. Arne Quinze built the ‘One world bridge’ there in 2014 and Thomas Dambo’s ‘Magical Troll Forest’ was completed in 2019.
