Aluminium sliding door
Aluminium, Solid Wood
Aluminum and glass united to create a "theatrical" partition, given the name of QUINTA. It’s a sliding solution to divide living areas, separate spaces, or to close off niches and walk‐in closets. QUINTA, the new proposal that ALBED launches on the market in 2014, represents simplicity and unique originality in one piece. One particular feature that makes this model unique on the market: the handle. An invisible element built into the rim that preserves the structure's sense of linearity, but at the same time marks the discontinuity of the material, interrupting the solidity of the aluminum frame. An exclusive proposal, that’s how QUINTA positions itself ‐ as the most sought‐after alternative among the available solutions. In this model ALBED enhances the concept of the integrated handle, suggesting finishes in refined wood, marble and various other options available in the catalogue. Akin to the contemporary theatre stage, QUINTA serves to demarcate the different "scenes" of the domestic space, hiding areas intended for rest and private walk‐in closets, or separating various day areas. The frame structure is made of aluminum, the panels are available in numerous types of glass or even silk, as shown in the catalogue. It is the attention to detail which makes this furniture unique. ALBED has designed a door which, in addition to the intrinsic value of the object itself, also carries a certain strong metaphorical message: the entrance, the passage, the transition.
