The concept of wabi-sabi is a growing trend in interior design – giving value to the imperfection of simple things, suggesting material choices and colours inspired by nature to create a welcoming and genuine home space. Neutral earth tones, combinations of raw materials such as wood, stone and glass, and simple decorations reflect the daily lives of those who live there in harmony.

In response to this trend, Albed offers a selection of doors styled in over 90 finishes, ranging from wood veneer to metals in various colours, glass embellished with asymmetrical metal meshes and matt-lacquered finishes for doors, partition systems, walk-in closets and bookcases.


The And door has classical appeal and is available in a push (opening at 90°) and pull version (opening at 180°), with a door panel flush to the jamb. The sliding version has an invisible rail, where the door panel is the only protagonist of the space.


Designed by Paolo Festa, the Celine door offers an interpretation of geometric decorations and the modernist movement. The door panel squares can be customised, with finishes in a uniform or contrasting way, and the glass can also be embellished with a thin metal mesh.


With the unique feature of completely concealing the jamb when closed, the Level door is designed by Paolo Cappello. The extremely thin door panel rests on a structure with a classic jamb, which is only revealed when opened. Appearing as flush to the wall, it is very effective when styled with a light brown wooden panel and white jamb.


For wabi-sabi style, the Quadra door is perfect, with aluminium profiles in a bronze finish or a delicate champagne. In the design drawing, this door focusses on the aesthetic technicality of the profiles. Available in a hinged, pocket, sliding or pivoting version, Albed recommends using a door panel in wood or glass, or even double glass.


Born from the desire to make the classic door as minimalist as possible, the Ritrait door highlights the choice of colours and materials. The result is a door where the panel is flush to the jamb, with simple lines, in a single finish or in contrast, for example with frosted glass and champagne profiles.

Issue: Developing a wabi-sabi style with doors, partitions and closets.
Solution: Use combinations of natural materials such as wood, stone and glass in the design.
