DORMA Launches World of Access Design Center in NYC, Providing Technical and Design Services to AEC Community
New York, NY, Nov 28, 2012 (PRWeb.com via COMTEX) -- To better serve the architectural design community, DORMA, an international leader in premium access hardware, interiors, and services, has opened its new World of Access Design Center in Midtown Manhattan.
World of Access is an unusual design resource, offering information, guidance and direct experience on doors, hardware and access technology to architects, designers, contractors and other members of New York's vibrant design community.
Guests can learn more about revolving doors, review choices in door closers and pulls, 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. This technology makes it easy to recognize all relevant product elements and advantages and manipulate the design display with ease.
World of Access provides accredited continuing education programs, instructional sessions, product and service introductions, and additional events serving the design community. It also hosts design consultations and other meetings with DORMA clients. 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 products will work in actual projects. Visitors benefit from the assistance of staff members who possess deep architectural and design experience.
The World of Access embodies contemporary design, including an 8,500 square foot space built of glass and steel and furnished with classic pieces 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.
