Americans at the Door

Last night at Material ConneXion Italian door manufacturer Lualdi unveiled its first collection of doors designed by U.S.-based architects. Dror Benshetrit's lacquered red Davina door stole the show with a diagonally folded design that makes the door appear slightly ajar when closed. Benshetrit explained to that the idea for the design came from the diagonal line that architect's use to indicate a reflective surface in sketches. The secret to the door's off-kilter appearance? A special hinge at the top that keeps the pivot points in line. The door, also in black or white, had a magnetic closure and a slim stainless handle, but the designer mentioned that another handle based on the door's design was in the works with Valli & Valli. David Rockwell presented a robust walnut design with a leather-wrapped bar inspired by his hand-carved Chambers Hotel entrance doors. The design has several options, with a thin metal frame and a horizontal stripe that can be customized. Robert A.M. Stern also delivered his take on modern-traditional style with three doors that reinterpret the classic New York pre-war apartment entrance. The full collection is available for pre-order now, and Lualdi plans to come knocking for more American designs in the future.
