When one door closes, a lamp door, storage door, and corner door open in its place

To celebrate their 70th anniversary, wood manufacturer Abe Kogyo and artist nendo have designed a series of seven doors that are part innovation, part design, and part utility.

They transformed the basic structure of a simple wooden door into a series of ideas: a door with sliding panels that allows light to filter through, a door that doubles as a shelf and storage. The series fuses technology and expertise from the manufacturer with the clever, elegant designs of the artist.

The “lamp” door combines a door and a light in one, using the same wiring techniques used in electronic locks to activate the lamp attached. Perfect for bathrooms and bedrooms that will light up without thought.
