“Stereotype” is a door designed by Kazutoyo Yamamoto of Dessence Co, Ltd. The door has just a doorknob with no lock. However, the door still has secure features, even though it doesn’t have a traditional lock. The idea is that stereotypes have driven design to associate “security” with a lock. The door has been designed so that the only way to forcibly enter is to destroy the door.
