Dooor's installation 'Playscape', inspired by urban playgrounds

This year's Salone del Mobile saw aesthetic folding door designer Dooor reconfirm its partnership with Calvi Brambilla and Partners with the installation "Playscape", inspired by the park of the same name created by the sculptor and designer, Isamu Noguchi. 'It's a self-supporting reticular structure,' explain the architects, 'which unfolds throughout the space and generates an immersive three-dimensional graphic effect, loosely inspired by the lines of urban playgrounds'.

Within Playscape, the folding door became a technical marvel: it outlined the exhibition route with a sequence of materials ranging from velvet to faux leather; it guided the three senses of sight, touch and hearing with its iridescent surfaces, inviting visitors to discover the space in one seamless flow. The curve's lightness was contrasted by the structure's solidity, which reached a height of no less than five metres: a challenging statement. Playscape embodied the legacy of the brand's craftsmanship. The ambience created in Milan was accentuated by the theatricality of the numbers, illuminated elements which, as a tribute to Mario Merz, marked the towering folding door to dizzying heights.

Among the materials on display, ECO2 was back, a manifesto of the brand's circularity, composed in part of recycled fibres with Oeco Tex certification and characterised by high sound-absorbing performance.

Dooor is present all year round at Archiproducts Milano, in via Tortona, where during the Design Week 'it dressed itself in water', interpreting the concept created by Studiopepe, "AQUA. A design exploration". A mirrored fabric door welcomed visitors at the entrance, while on the first floor two twin doors featured white lacquered faux leather and cerulean velvet. On the ground floor, the new Carola dressing room explored the intimate and domestic aspect of the circle: by wrapping ECO2 fabric around a simple nucleus, it shaped a potentially modular and duplicable feature designed to meet the need for sanctuary, quiet and privacy.
