I Can’t Stop Watching This Door Open And Close

How can door designs get any more interesting (or hypnotic)? Austrian artist, Klemens Torggler, decided to think outside the box one day. He created something he calls a “flip panel door.” If you research this, you’ll find that it’s a “kinetic sculpture” rather than a functional door. However, it can be used as a highly functional door, one that would thwart any would-be burglar from entering your home.

“Why is that?” I’m glad you asked. There are three main reasons:

First off, this bad boy is made of 440 lbs of steel.

Secondly, once they see how this thing opens and closes, they might wonder how advanced your home-security system is.

Finally, if any burglar saw you pushing 440 lbs of steel with a flick of your wrist… they’d probably reconsider.

As for appearance, the doors come in more styles than just black.

They also make double doors for wide entrances.

I hope this sets a trend for other amazing designs in the near future.
