Japanese architect Hideyuki Nakayama, in collaboration with door handle manufacturer UNION, has designed a glass globe doorknob.

What sets this doorknob apart from other designer doorknobs is that it allows you to catch a glimpse of the other side of the room before opening the door. The coolest thing about this is its simplicity because there is no trickery or hidden camera involved. Instead, the glass knob is cleverly designed to reflect the room you’re about to enter, giving it a crystal ball effect. Currently, the doorknob is on display at lifestyle-themed store, Plain People in Tokyo. Stats for Glass Globe Doorknobs Trending: Older & Warm
