The frames designed by Francesco Valentini and Lorenzo Ponzelli for Eclisse grant new aesthetic dignity to a structural element that is usually hidden.

The Eclisse 40 collection, designed by Francesco Valentini and Lorenzo Ponzelli for Eclisse, has been recognized with the Red Dot Design Award 2020 in the Product Design category. The jury rewarded the innovative concept of the design, inspired by the splayed openings used in medieval times.

Influenced by history, the young designers from the Marche region introduce a new archetype that allows you to look at the door from a new perspective.

The inclined profiles of Eclisse 40, unique in their category, are able to create a scenographic envelope around the doorway, until now possible thanks to specific works in masonry or plasterboard, which usually require professional skills, increasing costs and time of construction.

Valentini and Ponzelli conceive the structure as if it were a frame, an elegant and minimal sign that gives a sense of depth, maintaining the proportions of the classic wooden interior door trim. Eclisse 40 is a design and furnishing element, characterised by the anodized aluminium finish that does not require further processing. In addition, the anodizing process of the metal prevents its wear and tear and provides greater resistance to stains and scratches.

Each metal bend performs a precise technical task, defining the beauty and functionality of the product even in the smallest details. The internal structure of the profiles keeps jambs and crossbeams at an exact angle of 40 degrees to the wall surface, while special grooves allow a crack-proof finish between metal and wall.

Eclisse 40 aesthetically fulfils both sides of the door passage: on one side the product has the characteristic splay, while on the opposite side the window remains discreetly flush with the wall, and can be integrated into the wall using wallpaper or using the same colouring.
