SENSUNELS by Karim Rashid (Italy)

Flora Whittemore once said that the doors we open and close each day decide the lives we live. Yet when it comes to décor and finding the right elements to set the tone in a room, we often fail to notice the one object that has the potential to decide the lives we live: the door.


For centuries, people have looked at doors as nothing more than a partition between two rooms. Frames, lamps and other decorative artifacts are considered to give vivacity to a room, but doors are hardly ever a priority. In fact, doors haven’t dramatically evolved over the years. Innovative designer and mastermind Karim Rashid reveals the possibilities that this neglected piece of the puzzle has in his new collection for Di.Bi Group: Sensunels.


“In the age we live now decoration is more and more important to let people feel emotions and [to] live surrounded by objects that have a personality and [be] able to generate a passionate relationship with them.” Spokesperson for Di.Bi Group Dario Giorgini said.
Rashid pays homage and brings much needed attention to the door.  His vision breathes life into the flat surfaces of security and interior doors, using technology to give them energetic personalities. The patterns give depth to the flat surfaces by creating a three-dimensional appearance. Sensunels introduces a wide range of designs for every taste.


The Veil door brings modern sophistication and magnificence to the room, although it’s subtle and can easily blend with other objects. By looking at the Veil door, you can sense a relaxed vibe in the room. The Buffer door has a bright and upbeat personality that definitely catches the eye. It seems as though you could walk right through the door and step into another dimension. If you are looking for a fun and chic way to complement a room, then the Seal and Check doors should be on your list.


“We expect to leave a sign in doors production. No one before the Sensunels project thought to give doors a specific role in furnishing houses. Sensunels is made to combine security and design at the maximum level,” Giorgini said. “We would be proud to open a new concept in this sense and to hear, within few years, that Di.Bi has been the first.”
The unique thing about the Sensunels collection is that the innate, long forgotten door is finally catching up with this day and age.  Rashid has allowed the door to make a statement and become a lively, beautiful piece of art in a room.


The Sensunels collection will make you think twice before slamming a door, at least one designed by Karim Rashid.

SENSUNELS Philosophy

DI.BI.

Our mission is to make our customers live safely in their houses.
We design, innovate and test our products until we are satisfied, very satisfied, completely satisfied.

It may happen we leave a part a project or an idea, because we cannot realize it in the best possible way, or following our standard; or because we do not want to come to a compromise.
The passion of realizing projects in our way brought us going beyond.
It brought us thinking, imagining, and then producing something which emphasizes at maximum our aim to combine security and design.

Starting from this point, we began the collaboration with Karim Rashid, one of the most brilliant designer of our age, a true Archistar, able of giving life to projects which blend colours and lines in an unpredictable, original, surprising way.
This is what we crave to do with this collection of doors: to think out of the box, to amaze, to create a new style, to leave a sign.
We want to reinvent the door in general – and at the security door in particular – as a decorative and furnishing element.
Not just a division and a protection product, but an object able to communicate our passion and to arise emotions.

We have always been engaged in make our clients live safely in their houses. With Sensunels we have also committed ourselves to let them live their emotions.
