In & out door indicates whether to push or to pull by directing users to flatten a protrusion or a hollow on the door just as they put a puzzle together. A panel is protruding towards the user, and a handle is retracted into the surface of the door. When a user manages to accomplish the task of flattening as on the door body by pushing a panel and pulling a handle repeatedly, the door opens.
