From simple sliding doors to more complicated systems, these architectural frames enclose, conserve, reveal and enhance domestic settings, playing with finishes and materials, including glass, wood or fabric, metal grilles and screens, generating different aesthetic effects, but also offering privacy.
Nicandro (on cover), the mobile partition system designed by Egidio Panzera for Faram 1957, enters the ADI Design Index 2022, the phase of preparation for the Compasso d’Oro 2024. Panzera’s intuition has been to update the traditional fixed wall, juxtaposing multiple sections to contain panels of glass, wood or fabric, as well as metal grilles and screens. The stacking of multiple layers on the whole wall or portions of it generates a chromatic and material stratification that stimulates the senses, nurturing creativity and wellbeing.
Aladin Wall, designed by Piero Lissoni for Glas Italia, is a floor-to-ceiling divider with an aluminium structure attached to the floor, ceiling and/or wall. In the Mono version (photo) it has a layered glass panel applied on one side of the aluminium sections, for a perfectly planar surface on one side, and a recessed surface on the other. The frame is in dark brown anodized aluminium, and the sliding panels are in extralight glass with fabric.
Porro expands its range of sliding partitions, creating the new Glide System designed by Piero Lissoni + Iaco Design Studio, offering solutions that differ in terms of looks but are perfectly coordinated for combined use. The clarity of glass sets Glide Miru apart, enclosed in a graphic perimeter with the detail of a handle applied in the same finish as the frame, for protection that allows the gaze to pass through. Miru comes in a wide range of transparent, satin, reflecting or mirror finishes.
The Premium system of sliding doors of the Scenario line by FerreroLegno represents a new concept, of a door that becomes a complete system of partitions with enormous potential, making it possible to separate or to create visual continuity between rooms. In the photo, a configuration with four panels measuring 100 x 270 cm, with black border and bronze mirror glass, and a recessed handle with satin chrome finish. The glass panel encloses a sandwiched core to improve sound absorption.
Seta Collection is the new vision of Viva Porte to divide spaces: the Bellagio system now features luxurious silk fabrics with precious gold and silver effects, but also unique and exclusive collections painted by hand. The selected fabrics feature fine yarns, 100% made in Como.
Created by Piero Lissoni for Lualdi, L7 is a door with an ethereal, elegant design, ready to define and connect interiors in the home or at work. L7 Edit is the new system of fixed or sliding partitions in glass, which enhances the geometry of the surrounding space thanks to the graphic design of the aluminium slats that form the decoration on the door. The company has presented two versions: L7 Edit with T decoration, and L7 Edit with a crossed pattern.
The Ri-trait 8b collection by Albed references traditional Japanese partition systems, rethinking their particular features: paper and wood evolve into a match-up of glass and aluminium, with the result of a dense horizontal or vertical arrangement that is interrupted only by the minimal, slender handle. The series is made to measure and has the possibility of extension for the entire height of the wall; it is also personalized in its metal borders – offered in six finishes – and glass panels, also available in a range of colors and decorative patterns.
Perfect for the creation of corridors, wardrobe cabins or more luminous work zones, the Lucenti doors by Dierre become true sliding partitions, also useful to border shower areas, choosing satin-finish panels or glass decorated with a peek-a-boo effect. Available in a sliding version, inside or outside the wall, and in the hinged version, the Lucenti doors can also be used to make internal glazing of large size, possibly to divide the part of the house set aside for smart working.
