Wishlist Wednesday: December 10, 2014

This week’s wishlist is a quickie  – mainly because I’m too distracted by Christmas decoration prep, editing my photos from Alaska (which is where we spent all of the week of Thanksgiving) and because I don’t want to distract from the awesomeness that is this item.

Today someone shared Buzzfeed’s 22 Pictures That Prove That 2014 Is The Damn Future. It’s pretty incredible, what we’ve managed to accomplish. But what really caught my eye is #10, this amazing futuristic door that puts all sliding barn door ideas to shame:

The door, which also has an industrial-chic version made of solid steel, is the brainchild of Klemens Torggler, an Austrian artist. Also referred to as a “kinetic door”, it’s based on rotating squares that fold and pivot. From what I can tell, there’s no way to lock these so it’s not exactly practical to want one for a main door, but I think it’d make a beautiful interior door.

The best part is, Torggler custom-creates these according to the client’s style, so even if you don’t have a place with a really modern aesthetic, this could still work.

Here’s the steel door, for example.

Maybe I’ll put this on my Christmas list for next year.
