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.

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.

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.
