    Wouldn't the door design be completely dependent on the goal of the customer/user? Eg. this door represented in the article wouldn't be ideal as a high traffic entrance to a grocery store. Seems like this door tackles a specific problem just like other doors (at least well designed ones) tackle specific problems.

    Not sure if it makes sense to generalize this to be the 'epitome' of UX design...

      Yeah, we never know why this door exists in the first place. The job that this door is doing is pretty specific but we don't know a lot about it. Where is it? For who? Why? When is it used? How is it used? Do people even use their hands to open it? What if it's a warehouse door and people who use it always have stuff in their hands and they actually end up opening it with their back? What is it about the two rooms that makes a separation important? This article doesn't really get into that stuff. It's just a solution to a specific problem that we don't know about.
