Brilliant Door Design Flips Over to Open and Close

Vienna-based Austrian designer Klemens Torggler has crafted a revolutionary piece of architecture that allows one to enter and exit a room by shifting a multi-panel door, known as Evolution Door, to an adjacent position without a floor track. Instead of having to install additional components for a door to slide across, Torggler's door offers a flipping method that is altogether aesthetically pleasing to the eye, space-conscious, and entrancing to watch.

The designer's product provides a brand new outlook for something as conventional and universally recognized as a door. Gaining access to a room is turned into a kinetic art form. The door, which is currently just a prototype, is working out multiple design elements that address everything from appearance to functionality. Torggler has already equipped his invention with soft edges to account for hands that may accidentally get caught between the panels as they flip into their next position.

Check out the video, below, for a quick demonstration of the door opening and closing.
