No more nerve-racking trips to and from the bank. Stockinger produces custom-made safes for home or office so personal treasures can be kept close at hand without compromising security. Each safe is designed and built after detailed consultations with the client. Interiors can accommodate specific objects or pieces of jewelry (one avid watch collector requested an automatic winder for his moonphase timepieces) and are finished in either velvet or ostrich skin. The exterior can complement the decor of a room, with a color palette ranging from deep understated black to hot pink, or even a choice of simulated exotic hardwoods. The use of high-tech materials makes the safes considerably lighter than conventional models and allows for placement on any floor, while the state-of-the-art electronic locking mechanism is user-friendly. Discretion is assured: Specifics regarding construction are only given in person, and installation is performed worldwide by Stockinger's own Munich-based team, which delivers each safe in unmarked trucks. $65,000-$295,000. 35 Maximilianstrasse, Munich; 866-872-7233; 49-89-748-23-20; fax 49-89-785-33-23; www.stockinger.de.
