Dooor @ Clerkenwell Design Week 2024

For the second year in a row, Dooor conquers Clerkenwell Design Week.

London’s boundless creativity and Dooor’s technical flair come together in the circular Carola dressing room: a folding door on a self-supporting structure and covered in sound-absorbing textured fabrics that embraces the space at 360° and transports one into an unexpected dimension of privacy and quietness.

Dooor @ ICFF New York 2024

In the city that symbolizes architectonic audacity and in the backdrop of a reference trade fair for the contemporary design sector, the Dooor stand displays a sinuous ensemble of folding doors that combines textured sound-absorbing fabrics in warm hues on one side and a shiny, mirrored cladding on the other. A combination that embodies the fluidity of modern living, the desire for both intimacy and openings, the fusion of avant-garde and tailoring.

Dooor @ Milano Design Week 2024

Dooor returns to the Salone del Mobile and Fuorisalone with three highly interactive installations exploring the playful and curvilinear potential of its textile folding doors. Three different worlds, three complementary narratives of the impermanence of limits and barriers.

#DooorPress: Gianfranco Frattini. Design 1955/2003, December 2023

Gianfranco Frattini. Design 1955/2003, published by Silvana Editoriale, is now available in bookshops. The volume embraces the countless areas in which the architect has worked over the years and is enriched by images of one of the most popular “off” events of the Milan Design Week 2023, the exhibition Gianfranco Frattini: ieri, oggi, domani. Dooor has contributed to the retrospective by dressing a door with the unmistakable fabrics made by Torri Lana in collaboration with the Archivio Gianfranco Frattini, a tale of the intertwinement between professions and generations.

The catalogue will be presented on 11 January 2024 at the ADI Design Museum in Milan.

#DooorPress: Projects, November 2023

PROJECTS is a reference yearbook for A&D professionals in French-speaking Switzerland, and for the 2023 edition it also welcomed Dooor among the protagonists of the year’s most outstanding projects.

The renovation of a private apartment situated at the top of the Olympic Tower features a large and bright Dooor opening like a theater curtain over the iconic New York skyline and playing with the sinuous shapes of the furniture.

Dooor @ Boutique Design New York 2023

New York, the city without borders, and Dooor, the specialist in reversible partitions. In the backdrop of a reference trade fair for the hospitality sector in its ’boutique’ version. The Dooor stand designed by Calvi Brambilla embodies, with a sinuous door with daring matching, the dynamic soul of the metropolis, the history and future of hospitality, the fusion of avant-garde and tailoring.

Dooor @ FIND – Design Fair Asia 2023

Wavy silhouettes and eye-catching claddings for shapes that give form to lights and vice versa. Thanks to the unique touch of Calvi Brambilla, Dooor is ready to stun FIND Asia’s visitors with a playful ensemble of folding doors that mirror the fluidity of contemporary living and match perfectly with Singapore’s vibrant atmosphere.

Dooor Summer Break 14-25.08.2023

Summer waves are approaching… the perfect time to lay back, leave our thoughts behind, and take a well-deserved break. We will close our offices from August 14th and will be ready to reopen the Dooor after August 25th. Meanwhile, keep sipping inspiration from our latest projects.

Dooor wears ECO2

ECO2 is the new cladding for Dooor, a fabric that combines sustainability, fire-resistance, and exceptional sound-absorbing properties, available in 14 different colours.

It has a natural and soft touch and is partially composed of yarns derived from recycled PET bottles, making it a sustainable choice that contributes to reducing plastic waste.

Dooor @ Clerkenwell Design Week 2023

In Clerkenwell, the made-in-Italy design of Dooor and Very Simple:Kitchen unfolds in the dialogue between straight and curved shapes, between steel and fabric. To fixed walls and traditional kitchens, Dooor and Very Simple:Kitchen respond with ephemeral walls and flexible modular kitchens in an installation designed by Calvi Brambilla.

The exhibition design plays on contrasts and references: the stainless steel of Very Simple:Kitchen is recalled by the smooth and shimmering fabric that covers a part of the Dooor folding doors, counterbalanced in turn by the shaved velvet on the opposite side. The warm and enveloping tones of the doors establish a harmonious contrast with the metallic and sparkling tones of the kitchen.

Dooor – Unfolding the Future. The new catalogue 2023

The 2023 catalogue describes the haute couture of Dooor folding doors in great detail and with a rich overview of international projects: the range of colors, the numerous textures, the fantasy of configurations, the countless fields of application.

A catalogue conceived not only to illustrate, but also to inspire professionals in the Architecture & Design universe and give life to new ideas.

Dooor @ Gianfranco Frattini: ieri, oggi, domani – #MDW23

For the exhibition Gianfranco Frattini: ieri, oggi, domani his daughter Emanuela Frattini invited Dooor, together with other iconic brands, to recall the immense creative heritage of her father. Dooor acts as a trait d’union between the checkerboard pattern, dear to Frattini, and the pioneering role of the Milanese designer in the use of textile doors.

Dooor and Torri Lana reunite again this year at the top of craftsmanship and customization, in the magnificent setting of the frescoed rooms of Palazzo Arese Borromeo in Cesano Maderno (MB), from 14 April to 14 May 2023.

Dooor Summer Break 08-26.08.2022

It is a matter of fact that at Dooor we have this thing with waves. That’s why we will be out for a while (from 8 to 26 August 2022) to ride a wave – literally!
We will back soon. Meanwhile, keep an eye on our latest projects.

Dooor and Lapalma for relaxation breaks

A backdrop that separates from the frenzy of everyday life. The textile door thus creates corners of pleasant relaxation where you can savor the pleasure of a break, alone or in company. A concept expressed in these shots in which Dooor supports Lapalma in the creation of cafes and break areas, with a comfortable, versatile, light design.

Dooor @ Milan Design Week 2022

By nature, the door represents a point of access, the entrance to another world. An architectural feature that both separates and connects. This is how Dooor further develops its innate vocation, forging an unprecedented link with different creative universes that come to life in the setting of Milan Design Week 2022 from 6 to 12 June. Located in three distinct city venues, Dooor becomes the gateway to the past, present and future of design.

Dooor @ “Filo d’Autore” / “The Author’s Thread” – Torri Lana showroom – #MDW22

“Filo d’Autore” / “The Author’s Thread” exhibition, a journey through the history of Made in Italy, is one of Dooor destinations at Fuorisalone 2022. A tribute to the creative genius of Gianfranco Frattini, celebrated by his long collaboration with the textile company Torri Lana, host of the exhibition in its showroom in Via Pietro Calvi. Dooor is taking part in the exhibition displaying one of 15 new color combinations, emphasised by the well-known chequered pattern that the designer often used as a wall and cupboard covering. Presented in its bilateral opening model, the folding door is inspired by Frattini’s heritage of timeless visions and forms, to which we owe the success in the 1950s of this ‘interior architecture’.

Dooor @ Elle Decor “Design Forever” – #MDW22

At Palazzo Bovara, contemporary living plays host to the ‘Design Forever’ exhibition organised by Elle Decor Italia and staged by Calvi Brambilla and Antonio Perazzi. The concept from which Dooor originates, with its 1950s allure cast in a highly technological structure, fits perfectly into the tale of contemporary living, where past and present meet in the name of quality design.

Dooor @ Future Habit(at) – Archiproducts Milano – #MDW22

For the second year running, Dooor joins the Archiproducts Milano design experience: where the 15 rooms of the building in via Tortona 31 illustrate a vision of future living, amidst materials, colors and hybrid elements of aggregation. It is in this setting, in the installation called Future Habit(at) created by Studio Salaris, that Dooor conveys its dynamic attitude transcending times and (design) boundaries.

#DooorPress: Marie Claire Maison, April 2022

“The Door folding doors are configured at the same time as an architectural element to open up, divide or screen off an indoor area, and as a decorative element.”

Dooor @ Maison&Object 2022, 24-28 March 2022

On the occasion of the 2022 edition of Maison&Objet, the fair dedicated to décor design in Paris from 24 to 28 March, Dooor joins the collective organized by ICE-Agency for the promotion abroad and internationalization of Italian companies. The installation “La Lune”, inserted in the context of a choral participation, is inspired by the fictional image of the philosopher Bruno Latour on contemporary space. It tells of a traveler who, in seek of comfort, looks at the Moon, as the only point in nature to look at without feeling discomfort for having caused an environmental disaster: it is far enough, independent and too high to be affected. “La Lune” installation recreates a midnight blue, alienating and apparently cold, but with a more welcoming and elegant side through the Dooor folding door. Duality is made possible thanks to the LE-VI BLU 8001 eco-leather finish, which is waterproof, fireproof and resistant to microorganisms on one side, and thanks to FL-ST 5126 velvet finish on the other side. Dooor allows you to adapt each space to different needs, serving as a flexible and reconfigurable background.

Behind the Dooor

Infinity is hidden in each fiber of a fabric. At Dooor we believe in caring for each step of the process: from fiber to product. We carefully select our materials to provide the best experience in design, shaping each Dooor as part of a story. A story is all we search in each work: it is about meeting people’s needs and crafting a better place to live, work, and relax. Each hand counts, each fiber counts.

Happy New Year 2021!

This year we have learned that challenges bring new ideas. We wish everyone to embrace a new year full of opportunities, as Dooor loves to open up to new spaces.
For now, we close only to celebrate, from December 24th 2020 to January 6th 2021.

New golden handles

Light and material. These are the two terms that keep the new Dooor handle in tension: an opaque and golden surface that welcomes the light in an opening gesture that starts from sight. The folding door finds in the golden heat the ideal partner for a play of surfaces exposed to space with care and elegance.

Industrial Dooor

Space management has always been the spark for our ideas. Nowadays more than ever, spaces need partitioning and protection. Therefore, a project that has been developing for months, now takes shape in order to address the emergency with safer industrial subdivisions for the productive industry.
Made with flame retardant material, this Dooor divider allows for a safe partitioning of space without compromising productivity and comfort.
The stitching is coated with kevlar and made with stainless steel, guaranteeing maximum functionality and safety.

Dooor knocks and presents itself at Milano Design Week 2019

The new brand of folding doors has chosen Calvi Brambilla studio for its debut at Palazzo Litta with the Walk Out The Dooor installation. For its official launch during Milan Design Week 2019, Dooor appointed Calvi Brambilla to handle its artistic direction. As well as designing the Walk Out The Dooor installation (Palazzo Litta, 9-14 April 2019), Calvi Brambilla also brought in Zaven to take care of the brand’s coordinated image, the new catalogue and the new website (dooor.it), and invited Marco Sammicheli to write an introduction to the catalogue.

Installation View

Walk Out The Dooor

Walk Out The Dooor is an installation designed and curated by Calvi Brambilla to celebrate the partnership with up-and-coming brand Dooor, whose sound identity is rooted in the design of 50s-style folding doors and which now speaks the new language of fluid living. The display layout is an architectural exercise on the ability of Dooor’s folding door to give spaces new identities, creating a contrast with the frescoed rooms of Palazzo Litta. The Walk Out the Dooor narrative plays out along two routes to highlight the versatility of the folding doors across a variety of spatial layouts and different styles: enveloped in warm hues, the linear route presents different materials and finishings for the moveable structure; the circular route, featuring cold hues, forms the outline of a small living room. Zaven designed the pattern for the circular route, heralding the company’s new willingness to team up with Italian and international designers and graphic designers in the future.

Marco Sammicheli — Folding Interiors

The character of an interior depends on the size and shape of the rooms, the psychological impact of the light, the insight of the designer, all of which transform a volume of full and empty spaces into a home for all purposes. Thresholds are what allow us to divide up space without foregoing the sense of whole. Curtains, doors, windows and sliding partitions are all thresholds. The folding door is a fusion of these elements.
