  • Additional functionalities (optional): proposals suggesting innovative functionalities that go beyond the standard functions for this product typology will be greatly welcomed, for example an innovative closing system, a special handle, etc.
  • Common distinctive trait (optional): the two doors typologies (sliding and hinged) might have a common distinctive trait (for ex. the handle shape, a decoration, etc.), with a view to creating an interchangeable collection of products.
  • Size: the doors you design shall have the following dimensions (measures are referred to the single leaf door)
    • sliding door module, 255 cm high, 117,2 cm and 136,2 cm long
