After a two-year design process, German safe manufacturer Dottling has announced the release of a home safe created by fashion icon Karl Lagerfeld, the Los Angeles Times reports.
The safe, which the designer dubbed Narcissus, stands six feet tall and is three feet wide and weighs approximately 1,760 pounds, according to the news source. Features include an owner recognition technology that grants access to two pop-out cabinets, chrome-plated aluminum skin and a mirror-like finish.
A total of 30 models will be distributed on a made-to-order basis for consumers who can afford the $340,000 price tag, which may increase if Lagerfield adds a markup. The safes will be sold exclusively through LA Closet Design in West Hollywood.
According to the company's website, the designer worked with managing partner and master locksmith Markus Dottling to create the piece in a "quest for absolute perfection."
Lagerfeld told the media outlet that he is "not interested in what people want" and "designed a safe that [he] would like to own and which will stand in [his] home."
