Karl Lagerfeld is a German fashion designer, artist, and photographer based in Paris. He is the head designer and creative director of the fashion house Chanel as well as the Italian house Fendi and his own fashion label. A world known designer that has a talent so incredible that was asked to design this majestic safe, known as the most expensive safe in the world.
Designed by one of the most gifted designers of our time, a high-security safe has been developed on paper in Paris, which the specialists at the house of Döttling in Maichingen have built for the coming generations: the “Narcissus”.
A 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 (1,764 pounds) and is sheathed in high-gloss, chrome-plated aluminum. Fully automatically, the safe, with its fully reflective surfaces, pays tribute to the personality and aesthetics of its counterpart when closed, while enshrining all that is of highest value to its owner in its interior.
Probably the most modern and, at 250,000 euros, also the most expensive coffre-fort in the world will be irrevocably limited to a small production run of 30 specimens.
“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 DoÌˆttling built it for me,” Karl
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.
The luxury safe that changed the world, it is not just a piece where you can store with safness your items, is also a masterpiece of design.
