According to news sources, Lebedev Studio, which was founded in 1995 by Artemy Lebedev, lives by its motto, “design will save the world”. All of its creations are beautiful and unique both in concept and execution, and now Lebedev Studio has tackled the issue of personal security in a very creative and attractive way. The Lebedev Defendius Door Chain Lock stands out from all others of its ilk, defying entry because it is a door chain with a labyrinth, which is only long enough to reach the end of it. Personal security and a few fun moments seem to be the message here, and it works!
If you are not fond of labyrinths and are often in a hurry, this isn’t likely to the thief-resistant gadget of your dreams. It does take time to open a door with this type of lock on it, but according to many, it is quality time. The Lebedev Defendius Door Chain is constructed of 100% titanium alloy and its makers claim that it has proven to be resistant to approximately 700 pounds of force (equivalent to two and one half and possibly three obese burglars).
The Lebedev's Door Chain is also more firmly fixed to the surface of the door than any other similar products. It is fastened with ten screws as well as two extra screws for good (and extra good) measure. The titanium alloy composition renders the lock very tough and able to withstand extreme temperatures. It is also very lightweight. If you haven’t already suspected, titanium alloy is also an extremely expensive material, which up to now has been utilized, mostly in military applications. The price of the Lebedev Defendius Door Chain has not been revealed, but one can only use one’s imagination. As millionaire financier, JP Morgan used to say, “If you have to ask, you can’t afford it.”
Well, I know that I probably can’t.
How about YOU?
