Altaj: the flush door designed by SBGA | Blengini Ghirardelli studio
Altaj, designed by SBGA | Blengini Ghirardelli studio for Lualdi, goes beyond the minimalism of a door flush with the wall. Indeed the door does not disappear into the wall, but is actually highlighted by the metal profile that frames the door and enhances the finish. Thus, the decorative aspect of the door emerges from the wall, underlining its symbolic meaning of crossing, of passage.
“Altaj – explains the architect Mr Blengini – was born from the desire to combine the simplicity of the forms with technological research and performance. Pushing to the limits the expressive potential of this object and its possibilities for customization”. Altaj consists of a thin frame that, extending out from the wall with a minimum thickness of 1.5 cm, takes on a threadlike appearance.
The edge that runs round all four sides thus creates the three-dimensionality of the object, both when seen aligned with the wall, as well as the opposite, when the door is contained in the niche created by the thickness of the wall.
The symmetry of the frame and the absence of a striker make the door a very effective decorative element, even when it is in the open position.
Because it is so light, Altaj lends itself to being covered with different materials, from wood to gres, from leather to wallpaper, to create well defined visual effects and become the key element of the space thanks to an unmistakable and innovative feature.
Altaj: so much more than a flush-to-the-wall door with a metal profile
Altaj is so much more than just a flush door with a metal profile: it is a minimalistic and technological work of art installed in the space to define its character, personality and charisma.
The reversible design makes this interior door a highly customizable element capable of full integration in the room’s aesthetics and acting as the main element to define its style.
The frame of this flush-to-the-wall door, the metal profile reduced to a minimum, become the gateway to the different environments of your home or office, but also the focal point for any observer. They are empty yet full elements, they both listen and tell.
The interior door with leather or marble cover that defines your spaces
Not only wallpaper, stoneware and wood coverings for Altaj: the flush door designed for Lualdi by SBGA | Blengini Ghirardelli studio is almost an artist’s canvas.
Therefore, it is not only the aluminum profiles that frame the space on the wall, but also the scenic and visual effect of the door itself thanks to its different customizable coverings. Leather, marble or virtually any other material, this is how style is expressed and illustrate on a visual level.
A door covered in leather or marble is a story that tells itself. It is also a personal story narrated by the architects’ design choices just as much as by the individual taste of those who install the door in their rooms. By associating the thin aluminum profile with the material that best expresses the uniqueness of a choice, synergy becomes tangible.
