FF: Doors of Klemens Torggler

Category: Beautiful Doors,Fixed-it FridayLori @ 12:03 am Comments (4)

The design blogs and architectural sites are all abuzz about these doors designed by Austrian artist Klemens Torggler.  I agree – they are very cool and it’s about time someone invented an alternative to the hinge, which has been around for thousands of years.  Let’s not ruin the party by mentioning security, egress, durability, accessibility, fire resistance, or chopped off fingers, and just enjoy the innovation.  😀

Links were sent to me by Liz Lenox and Michael Scarberry of Allegion, and also by my brother.  🙂

    Torgglodyte (cave dweller?) The last guy to re-invent the wheel came up with the stop sign. I have a few words that apply here

    These are a lot fun! But here in America I’m not sure we have the patience it takes to open and close these.
