Karl Lagerfeld and His Most Expensive Home SafeJune 7, 2010
Got an extra $340,000? Then why not splurge it on a luxury home safe that’s designed by Chanel genius Karl Lagerfeld and built by Döttling? Aptly named after a Greek mythology character known for his exceptional beauty, the “Narcissus” safe protects your valuables in style.
Protecting your valuables with Narcissus
Narcissus is a hand-crafted safe that offers high-tech security features. Because this is custom-made, only 30 safes were created. If you want something that goes beyond the traditional technical and aesthetic appeal of a regular safe, the Narcissus won’t disappoint you. Its stunning exterior is made of aluminum that’s chrome-plated and glossy, while the indestructible body is made of steel. Weighing in at 800 kilos with dimensions of 1.0 m (width) and 1.80 m (length), this is a superbly crafted home safe that provides enough space for your million-dollar watches, jewelry, bags, and other luxury items. Custom-designed partitions and compartments, along with watch winders, make this home safe a luxury furniture worth coveting for.
Its high-tech security system uses owner-recognition; you just need to wave your hand in front to open the safe. According to designer Lagerfeld, his goal was not to create what something buyers want. He wanted to create something that will reflect his sense of style and lifestyle while protecting his valuable collections.
