Ever since glass globes were first produced, the fascination of the public for these type of decorative items was unbelievable. Every Christmas snow globes become a “hunted” gift, as they seem to brighten up the room where they are placed in. This uncommon glass globe doorknob was created by architect Hideyuki Nakayama in collaboration with Design Tide Tokyo for UNION, a producer of door handles and levers. From a distance, it looks like a colorful and inviting object, but as one approaches, a new miniature world is revealed. Magical and meticulous, the Room in a Glass Globe has the unusual ability of reflecting the room located on the other side of the door. Unfortunately, we don’t know the mechanism behind this, but we are certain we will find out more information soon. The project is said to be manufactured at a large scale and we can’t hardly wait to see it displayed in stores.- via mocoloco
