Created by, probably, the most gifted designer of our time – Karl Lagerfield, a spectacular high-security safe has been developed on paper in Paris. The most expensive security safe was made by the specialists at the house of Döttling in Maichingen.
“Narcissus” is its name. A puristic room installation at first glance, the safe only reveals its capabilities when it identifies its owner and has been activated by him.
Then, two handcrafted interior cabinets containing watch winders and jewelry drawers emerge from its steel body, which weighs 800 kilos and is sheathed in high-gloss, chrome-plated aluminum. Fully automatically, as if controlled by an invisible hand.
The most expensive coffer-fort in the world will cost 250 000 euros and will be irrevocably limited to a small production run of 30 specimens.
At 1.80 m high and 1.0 m wide but just 30 cm deep, the “Narcissus” breaks through previous aesthetic and technical limits. The world has never seen such a slim high-security safe before.
The masterpiece, with its fully reflective surfaces, pays tribute to the personality and aesthetics of its counterpart when closed, enshrining all that is of highest value to its owner impregnably in its interior.
This highly innovative and exclusive design safe is also a very personal statement by a public figure who has made, and continues to make, history in the worlds of fashion and photography.
Naturally, the first model is reserved for its creator, Karl Lagerfeld, who photographed it personally.
“I am not interested in what people want. I’ve designed a safe that I would like to own and which will stand in my home. Markus Döttling built it for me,” commented Karl Lagerfeld, referring to his modern design masterpiece.
