Karl Lagerfeld x Doettling- "Narcissus"

Naturally you would want to house your jewelry it in a safe that is just as impressive. Now you can.
German luxury safe maker Döttling has partnered up with Karl Lagerfeld to design this handsome six foot safe with enough innovative features and style to rival the goodies kept inside.

"Döttling’s newest creation was developed throughout 2009 on paper in Paris, designed by Lagerfeld. Then the Narcissus was made by Döttling’s specialists. Seeming much like a purist room installation at first glance, it reveals its true spirit when it identifies its owner upon activation — at which point two handcrafted interior cabinets containing watch winders and jewelry drawers automatically emerge from the steel body sheathed in high-gloss, chrome-plated aluminum weighing 800 kilos."

Döttling is only producing 30 Narcissus safes; the first going to Lagerfeld himself of course.
"I am not interested in what people want." Lagefeld says. "I’ve designed a safe that I would like to own and which will stand in my home. Markus Döttling built it for me..."

Trust me, the people want it. ~vK
