Lualdi is an historical Italian brand that manufactures top quality and made-to-measure design doors for the indoor, also thanks to the collaboration with great architects from the international scene. Lualdi can praise a long history. In 1859 Carlo Lualdi started off a carpenter’s shop for the creation of custom-made furniture in Marcallo. After 100 years of handcraft work, in the aftermath of World War II, the company started collaborating with the big architects of the time, such as Vico Magistretti, Anna Castelli Ferrieri, Ignazio Gardella, Roberto Menghi, Marco Zanuso and Luigi Caccia Dominioni. From the special relation with the latter the company got to a turning point and grew into an industrial reality, during the ‘60s. The company took an international scale in the ‘90s, when Lualdi got to Great Britain and the United States, experiences that paved the path for collaborations with the big names of world contemporary architecture. Each step moved forward by the company and new achievement rely on an ambitious project founded on solid values, especially connected to the product quality and the working processes together with the strong social responsibility that brings Lualdi to actively engage in protecting the environment.
The design of Lualdi internal doors
Today, the collaboration with world-known architects and designers is a definite strength point for Lualdi. The company has indeed succeeded to develop specific door models able to meet the needs of project developers and turn them into cutting-edge solutions for the market, later on. Each new project is one stop of a constant journey in the sign of research, experimentation, technological and formal innovation. The relationship with the Milanese architect and urban planner Luigi Caccia Dominioni, a prominent designer of the Milan bourgeoise of the ‘50s and ‘60s, led Lualdi to an industrial scale and to the creation of models that have become icons of the brand. LCD (1962) is an example, the first successful fruit of this fortunate relationship. This is a door with a coplanar wooden jamb, characterized by reversible opening system, concealed hinge and telescopic trim, which makes this model adaptable to any wall thickness. After 50 years the project is still featured in Lualdi catalog, in a version that has evolved both technically and aesthetically. The proportions have indeed been revisited and the finishes introduced are in line with contemporary needs.
In most recent times, it is worth mentioning the collaboration with the French architect Erik Morvan, who designed Outline, a door which is also an architectonic element thanks to its capability to define the space with a pure volume; that with Robert A.M. Stern, who conceived the Avenue doors drawing inspiration from the flats of the New York of the ‘30s; the one with Marco Pica, who with Edge managed to design a bi-dimensional door with a three-dimensional effect. Impossible to forget the L16 door by Piero Lissoni which was awarded the Compasso d’Oro in 2014.
Lualdi doors: essential lines and care for details
Design in projects by Lualdi unveils a sheer fusion between form and function. The essential lines and the care for the details confer the doors a strong identity, a quality that has made them recognizable and famous all over the world. Rasomuro is the wooden hinged door that perfectly camouflages with the wall thanks to a completely concealed hinge system, the 55mm thickness and the invisible aluminum jamb. The Rasovetro variant retains all the characteristics proper of Rasomuro and adds visual lightness, transparency and an airy appearance to the space where it is installed, thanks to the material it is made of, glass.
L7 PLUS is the evolution of the L7 sliding system. The large fix or sliding glass panels, play as a partition while allowing the light to come through; moreover they bring a graphic design to the space, thanks to the squares created by the aluminum strips.
Koan is the sliding system that unites glass, wood and aluminum for a scenographic impact with an Oriental taste. The name, indeed, takes inspiration from the Japanese zen philosophy. The wooden vertical slats with a trapezoidal section, create an elegant partition of the glass surface.
Shoin is a partition system with sliding or pivot glass door allowing to divide the space while creating a cozy ambiance traversed by light.
Lualdi also proposes boiserie systems, even in the all-length version, to create uninterrupted wooden surfaces, with styles ranging from classic to contemporary. Finally, details make all the difference. For Lualdi details include the possibility to opt for magnetic locks, the care in producing soundproofing hinges and the array of recessed handles with an essential and elegant design.
