Masterlock Select Access: 2006 – Tres Design
This was a fun summer project I worked on with Dino Sanchez, the mysterious 4th Tres employee. We were to redesign the standard real estate key box which hangs around the doorknob of homes for sale. It was just the right kind of mechanical, small, geometric box which I love. I think the only requirements where that it needed to lock around a standard door knob, and be able to hold a couple of large keys and key card. It was great fun tearing apart locks to understand how they work, and how large the components are. I think they really liked the bullet-proof massiveness of the donut looking concept and wanted to take that style into other industrial applications, but I heard that there was a massive internal re-org around the time the project ended.
