I’ve been dying to write a post about this for months now, and today is the day. I am so happy to be able to feature the iF Award-winning Belgian design company, Portapivot, on the blog with their amazing pivot hinges. Portapivot is actually a spin off B2B company aimed specifically at interior professions. The mother company, ANYWAYdoors, has been around since 1995 providing great designs for interior doors to markets in Belgium, The Netherlands and Luxemburg. The company has been awarded many international design awards which saw interest appear from an audience outside their established market. Portapivot has been designed as their answer to these international requests and makes their popular room divider products and its patented hinge system accessible to interior professionals across the globe.
With the technology of their Stealth Pivot pivoting hinge, no unsightly fixtures are visible after installation and this makes the panels appear as if they are floating on air. The hinge, which makes it possible to create pivot doors up to 150 kg, features a high-tech comfort closure that works in all swing directions up to 360°. It is a true meeting point of industrial style and practical interiors and would make a dramatic and appealing feature in any home.
The hinges can be custom made and are designed for ease of installation, meaning you are able to install all their products without the need to employ a fitter, making them a cut above the rest in terms of door and divider solutions. The Stealth Pivot is designed to be mounted on an already installed floor and under a solid or reinforced ceiling surface, without any pre-installed mounting systems. Installation is therefore easy, and possible in both new as existing projects, with a minimum anchoring consisting of only two bolts implanted to ± 4.5 cm depth.
This offers fantastic room dividing options, and when used with a glass door nothing will be taken away from the space. They would fit perfectly in open plan living spaces and properties with high ceilings, to create division between the various areas in your home, but without physically carving up the space.
I can’t express enough how amazing these pivoting doors and room dividers are. Check out these images above and tell me what you think? I’m now dreaming of living in huge open plan industrial space where I could get one of these beautiful pivoting doors installed.
