The new door project designed by SBGA | Blengini Ghirardelli for Lualdi is inspired by Altai – literally the “golden mountain” – the Asian mountain range renowned since the Bronze Age for its artistic influence on the neighboring regions of China. Devised to go beyond the minimalism of the flush-fitted door that seeks to disappear into the wall, Altaj has as its border a sort of frame that lifts the surface of the door from the wall, enhancing its finish. This slender brass border emerges from the wall with a minimum thickness of 1.5 cm, running around all four sides and heightens the door’s three-dimensional quality, both in the view aligned with the wall and in the opposite one where the door is contained in the niche set in the thickness of the wall. The symmetry of the frame and absence of a stop make it a very effective decorative feature even when the door is in the open position. Due to its lightness, Altaj offers ample scope for customization. It can be faced with various materials, from porcelain stoneware to wood, wallpaper or leather, creating eye-catching visual effects and becoming a feature of the interior by its unmistakable and innovative character.
