Coming in 2021, Pirnar’s Theatrica is a patented innovation. It is the first massive, contactless and completely automatic entrance wall on the market. The face recognition system recognizes the owner, then gently opens and closes behind him/her. If you wish to stop the closing process, a gentle movement is enough, and it will stop immediately. It remembers everyone who wants to enter and informs you about them.
Theatrica can be made in large dimensions, even as a double door, which creates the impression of an opening wall. Theatrica magically disappears into the wall and magically slides out of it. It can disappear into a wall that can also be glass. The surface is not spoiled by any handle and is available in wood, stone, glass or aluminium and a wonderful palette of colours and sheens.
German Design Award Winner 2019: Jury Statement
“This ultra-modern door is operated solely via electronics and automatically performs facial recognition – which is why the clear surface is devoid of any visually jarring door handle. Plus, the door is completely frame-free. An exclusive door design that leverages the opportunities afforded by modern technology and transmutes them into a pure aesthetic.”
