Eclipsing form

Contemporary architecture with its minimalist forms demands ever more sophisticated technological solutions, at least in terms of their capacity to remain invisible.

After almost a century of frantic exploration and research into form, modernity - now into its nth season, has today established as its most representative horizon the progressive disappearance of form: it appears as evanescence, a reduction in expressive data or liberation from the dominance of the visual. It is a characteristic that is shared by practically all design disciplines but that is perhaps most widely applied in the world of architectural design. This is in some ways surprising: not just because traditionally much of the nature of architecture is founded on the concept of mass but also because quite simply it is usually more difficult to make a building ‘disappear’ as opposed to for example an everyday object or work of art. Paradoxically therefore, this process of extreme simplification of expressive data corresponds to a necessary development of ever more innovative and complex technological solutions.

Specially studied for sliding doors with no jambs or external frames, the Synthesis sub-frame enables functional and space/saving solutions to be created or large dramatic openings in walls

In a case that is perhaps unique within the world of design, this notion constitutes a fundamental mission even right from the name, Eclisse: an Italian company that has become a prominent brand worldwide in the sector of door sub-frames thanks to a range of solutions specially designed for every single type of door. For disappearing models with outer wall jambs, the Classic Collection has been developed, a versatile range of sub-frames that can be integrated with jambs and finishing details that protrude with respect to the door. The system is developed in specific versions for rendered or plasterboard walls and can house disappearing doors with a single leaf (Unico), two leaves (Estensione), with predisposition for electrical cables (Luce), telescopic doors (Telescopica), circular (Circular) or book (Novanta).

Integration with jambs and protruding finishes with respect to the wall surface is resolved by the sub-frames in the Classic Collection range, available for surfaces with a rendered finish or in plasterboard and for numerous types of doors

Synthesis on the other hand has been conceived for disappearing doors without external finishes (Scorrevole) also with space for cables (Luce) and for versions flush with the wall (Battente). Thanks to these solutions, the doors appear free from frames and without jambs or architraves. The line also includes frames to conceal technical areas and access doors (Tech). The insertion of a special profile also enables a skirting board to be inserted that is flush with the wall: a sophisticated detail that creates the appearance of a single continuous line along the wall. The type with flush with the wall jambs is Shodō: a collection of sub-frames that includes two versions for sliding or hinged doors. Also in this case the system can be completed by a special profile for skirting boards that are flush with the wall, with zero thickness.
