Palazzo Madama

Embracing History

In its current form the Palazzo Madama in Turin dates back to the 15th century, but the majestic pivot doors that lead to the palace gardens are much more modern. In 2016, applying our System M hinge, these doors were renovated by architect Diego Giachello. Proof that antique doors and modern technology can combine seamlessly.

 

Invisible and self-closing

Because of their self-closing function, the doors are exceptionally suitable as entrance doors in the winter months. The fixed settings at 90 and -90 degrees ensure that the door can remain stylishly open in the warmer months.
