Curtain Door made from Wood

Designed by Matharoo Associates, this beautiful curtain door was created for the diamond merchant’s residence in Surat, India.

At 5.2m high and 1.7m wide, the door is comprised of 40 wooden sections. Each section is carved so that the door integrates 80 ball bearings, 160 pulleys, a counter weight, and a wire rope.

Stacked one above the other when closed, each plank can then rotate by a simple push causing the door to reconfigure into a sinusoidal curve.

    Hi... I don't know if you've been making changes, but your pages aren't displaying correctly for me. The edges of the text are running into each other. I didn't do this the other day. I don't know if it's something on my computer or if you've made a change... Just thought you might want to look at it. Thanks!
