World of Access is a design resource offering information, guidance and direct experience on doors, hardware and access systems to architects, designers, contractors and other members of New York’s vibrant design community.
Guests can thoroughly review and evaluate DORMA products and functionality. Designers can see a revolving door, review choices in door closers, browse hardware, and much more. Among the design center’s features is a spectacular media table that can upload spec materials, immediately integrating them into images or drawings for designers’ and customers’ buildings.
The latest in technology facilitates this capability, making it easy to recognize all relevant product elements and advantages and manipulate the design display with ease.
The space is also equipped with full video capabilities and a database of case studies that make it possible to see and feel how DORMA’s superb access solutions work. Visitors will benefit from the assistance of staff members who possess deep architectural and design experience.
The World of Access embodies contemporary design with 8,500 square feet of glass and steel and classic furnishings by Vitra, USM Haller and Knoll. The New York location is the first of many such centers that DORMA plans to open in international design and business locales such as Vienna and Dubai.
