Push or pull / door

Push or pull
Push or pull

Push or Pull? It is the confusion common to most people when facing a closed door with two sides alike, even absolutely the same. Designed to solve it, the door is composed with two materials, "metal and glass", to let the light come through. Thus, the door seems open forward or back farward when actually closed, giving us an indication whether we should push or pull.
