No Design: Max Door

Posted on August 15, 2008 Under Design

You’d think the most interacting you could do with a door is to open it. Hey, I’m not venturing into pervy matters here, but Brazil’s No Design had a different idea for their handle-less Max Door. It locks and unlocks with a remote control like the one you use for your ride and takes only a tap to open. But rather than clicking the remote a thousand times to ensure you’re triggered the lock, LEDs on the door will light up to tell you whether you ought to click again. Smart door. The doorbell’s sound is even digital. You’d think the door should come with a portal to the future or something, but alas, it’s part of Max Haus‘ amenities in their new-living apartment buildings in Sao Paulo and a winner of Idea Brasil’s Design Award 2008.
