I pull the door shut on a white-leather cocoon, a wraparound 'screen with A-pillars pulled back almost into peripheral vision, white, quilted leather and silvery glyph-stamped electronics making bleepy noises that nobody understands. The wheel is white, the change paddles are white, the silvered dash animated and slick, with a touchscreen on the right. Clean and technological, it's only an Apple logo and set of indecipherable apps away from being a Scandinavian Mac user's porn dungeon. The door itself spirals down and in, winding sideways from vertical to horizontal via an M.C. Escher-complicated, architecturally cute door-flange-and-dampers arrangement that you could hang on the wall as industrial art. It seems faintly churlish to call it a mere hinge.
