Over-Engineered Door

door 1

How can you over-engineer a door you might ask?  Well, that’s a question answered by Matharoo Associates.  They’ve designed, and built this interesting door above.  It’s made of 40 individual sections of Teak, with 160 pulleys, 80 ball bearings, and a wire rope connected to a counterweight.  Opening the door happens with a wave of each piece of Teak.  It’s an elegant door, but completely over-engineered, for sure.

The Best Door Ever

That door is awesome. Period. End of sentence, awesome. Completely custom made by this guy, it’s two peices of glass etched with the sword on one, and the dragon on the other, then 120 LEDs on the edges sending the light through the glass.

It is a work of art that I really, really, really want to put in my house. Only I’d make my own design. Either way, it’s awesome, and I love it.

EDIT: hello stumblers and people from reddit.

note to stumblers (and everyone), there is clearly a link to the original at the top of the article, and this falls under the “a stumble” category as is…
