The world's most expensive safe

Karl Lagerfeld has designed a spectacular high-security safe, which the specialists at the house of Döttling in Maichingen have built: the “Narcissus.”
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. 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.
Probably the most modern and, at 250,000 euros, also the most expensive coffre-fort in the world, it will be irrevocably limited to a small production run of 30 specimens.
