Vertical lines to give rhythm to the light: this is the assignment of the folding door, enhancing the design of MDF Italia in this shot of its products.
Purity, solidity and harmony recede as a background for the shapes without overwhelming them, as in the style of Dooor.
Dooor is partner of Studiopepe at SIA Hospitality Design, the Italian trade fair dedicated to hôtellerie, as part of ROOMS project which includes 6 mock-ups of hotel rooms created by internationally renowned architects together with brands that promote Italian creativity all over the world.
INTERNO GIORNO is the name of the project signed by Studiopepe, capable of evoking enveloping and dreamlike atmospheres. “We envisage a future in which the way we use hotel rooms will change and where you can spend more time than just the night.”
Save The Daaate: from 4 to 10 September!
Future Habit(at) is the setting of Dooor within the new layout for Archiproducts 2021, in via Tortona 31, designed by Studio Salaris. A game of spatial variations allows us to imagine new flexible and reconfigurable spaces of the future.
Vietato l’ingresso, at Teatro Arcimboldi Milano, is a claim of curiosity for Dooor to characterize two dressing rooms, designed by Atelierzero and Park Associati, opening up the most unfathomable spaces of any theater.
Dooor is partner of Archiproducts Milano for Future Habit (at), the new layout of via Tortona 31 designed by Studio Salaris. Two textile doors define the space of the future, at a time when the need for flexible and reconfigurable spaces defines the new way of living.
Dooor is technical partner of the project VIETATO L’INGRESSO (NO ENTRANCE) curated by Giulia Pellegrino at the Teatro degli Arcimboldi, where 17 prestigious design studios tell their own story giving voice and shape to inaccessible spaces, where access to the public is forbidden: the Camerini del Teatro.
From the 5th of September, the new dressing rooms will be accessible to the public until the 27th of September 2021.
Dooor proudly announces a new collaboration with Very Simple Kitchen.

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.
IN THE SHOWCASE. From Beijing to New York, from Milan to Dubai, these interiors tell about new ways of living: design signatures, pure lines, personality.

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.

Fabio Calvi and Paolo Brambilla present Dooor folding doors at Palazzo Litta during Milan 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.
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.
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.
