It's an elevator that caters to the unlucky number phobics out there. He`s the rundown.

-1 is not unlucky, but they`re put that instead of the usual `B` for basement level.
4 is excluded coz it sounds like death in chinese, unlucky.
13 is excluded coz it`s unlucky in western cultre, eg friday 13th.
14 sounds like MUST DIE in chinese.

Many hotels in the western world exclude the 13th floor, and avoid labelling a room 6 6 6 because of fearful customers. Likewise asians avoid living anywhere with the number 4 in its address.

maybe the missing floors are restricted floors and can only be accessed by a different life?

In china, number 4 is cosidered bad luck, so in many buildings there is no fourth floor.
