Invisible Concepts to Create Minimalistic Interior Design

Due to the growing importance of minimalist interior design during
the recent years, our company has been focusing on the development of an
invisible door concept.

The door has changed from a basic joinery product into an
interior defining design object. A door 100% flush with the wall offers
interior designers the possibility to create a timeless and uniform
design, and the frameless door itself offers a multitude of benefits
compared with a traditional standard door.

In this CPD you will take away a better understanding of why the
interior door trend is changing, what solutions are available for
design-orientated interior doors, the concept behind invisible door
frames and how to specify, install and finish them and also the growing
importance of minimalistic interior door design in the future.
