Stereotype is a project by Kazutoyo Yamamoto at Clear Gallery.
This is his description of the project:
In fact, all that is there is merely a doorknob, meant only for opening the door.
However, despite having no lock, this door is not without security features.
How can this be? It is just that stereotypes have driven design such that we associate “security” with having a lock.Perhaps it was just our childhood selves that think doors can open easily.
Rather than the stereotypical door, we have designed a door where a physical lock is unnecessary by changing the stereotypical image of the door.
The only way to forcibly enter is to destroy the door.
That is our “lock.” And with this new “lock,” a new door is designed.
