1970s Cast Aluminum Door by Billy Joe McCarroll and David Gillespie


Best known for the "Heroic Sunset" doors for Forms + Surfaces, McCarroll and Gillespie created another masterpiece of design with this unique sculptural door. The design of the door surface is integrated into the surrounding frame of cast aluminum. The oversized handle is a work of art by itself! The surround is aluminum channel, with spaced holes for installation. The interior of the door is a flat, gloss laminate panel with interesting cubist hinges and handle. The door and frame are in straight and solid condition, with minor signs of age. The door thickness is 2 1/4 inches, with full depth (including handles) listed below.
