Klemens Torggler's hingeless flip-panel door folds open like origami
24 March 2014
Austrian artist Klemens Torggler has created a rotating geometric flip-panel door system that opens up with momentum. The special construction makes it possible to move “evolution door” sideways without the use of tracks. This technical trick opens up new applications for the door.
