A somewhat annoying door I encountered a few months after reading Donald A. Norman's Psychology Of Everyday Things for the first time. It's the entrance to the building housing the library of the Institute of Applied Sciences, part of the Albert-Ludwig-University Freiburg. Like many other doors, you can't see whether to push or pull to open it; to avoid making you feel stupid, there's a one-word manual printed on it. This incarnation takes the concept to a new height: The manual is multilingual, in a fancy newfangled sans-serif font and etched in the glass to give it a cool translucent look. But by making it translucent, you can actually read both inscriptions regardless of the side you're standing on.
