Light Emitting Doors for Your Home by Marisa Richter Turn Utility into Design.
Doors & Style is a young label from Cologne headed up by designer Marisa Richter. They focus on designing unique stylistic doors as their work. Rather than looking at a door as something to open or close, they look at 'connecting' two rooms as their focus.
With minimal modifications of a typical door, Doors & Style adds new functionality to the ordinary door and transforms it from a piece of utility to a piece of design.
The Full-size Scape Door:
Full-size Scape Door connects two rooms without limiting the actual function. Depending on the time of day the door senses whether a light source has, or has not, been turned on in another room.The monotony of an ordinary door is replaced by the incisions in the customized door. You can admittedly not recognize what is concealed behind the door, but the imaginative images trigger positive emotions for that which lies behind. The door is made of solid wood in RAL 9016 with cut out decorative images and double-sided laminated foils. It is suitable for an interior space and available as flush edge or with an angular frame. On request they can also deliver the door frame.
At the moment two different designs are available (Birdie's and Forest) but they are also able to manufacture your own design or integrate your corporate logo. Depending on the number of units and after clarification of all details, delivery time is between six and eight weeks. They reserve the right to make technical modifications, namely alterations, to the design template.
Fittings (exclusive door handle) are supplied and incorporated in the price.
The Down-Scape Door:
If light falls onto the Scape Door from behind a totally unique interplay of light and shadow appears on the floor. With a small alteration the ordinary door acquires a greater prominence. It is more than an opener: a piece of jewelry as well as a source of light.
The filigreed door slot creates better ventilation and can be used as a substitute for doors that have a ventilation grille – for example bathrooms – or for 'Passive' houses. The down Scape Door is available in RAL 9016 colours and special colours are available on request.
With this door you create a landscape in a dark room. It's an interior wooden door with a chipboard core and is available as a door with flushed edge or with an angular frame.
At present there are two different designs available (Landscape and Skyscape) but they are also able to manufacture your design or to incorporate a logo. Depending on the number of units and after clarification of all details, delivery time is between six and eight weeks. They reserve the right to make technical modifications, namely alterations, to the design template. Fittings are supplied and incorporated in the price. They can also deliver the door frame on request.
