Luxury Door Manufacturer Enrols Help of Students for Latest Designs

Bespoke door manufacturer Deuren has enrolled the help of three design students to develop its next cutting-edge craftsmanship.

Three creative young minds from the University of Central Lancashire (UCLan) were chosen as the winners of a competition set by Deuren’s founder and managing director Ian Chubb. And now the stand-out work will be put into production at Deuren’s West Yorkshire workshop.

Ian set the same design parameters he would give to anyone who approaches Deuren with an enquiry – no limits. He was looking for something eye-catching and truly unique for an internal door set.

The students did not disappoint. In first place 28-year old Leigh Nikita Cain came up with a bold geometric design with sophisticated mali wenge and driftwood vinyl – a modern twist on a traditional piece of furniture. Abigail Bailey came second with a striking aged wood and resin door with twig handle cast in bronze. Finally, in third place, Ben Hunter impressed by focusing on the technical composition of a door rather than the aesthetics – his work highlighted the need for adaptable doors that can easily be changed with inlays that update the look and feel of a room.

Both Leigh and Abigail’s work will now come to life when Deuren’s own craftsmen turn the concepts into reality.

Commenting on the reason for the competition, Deuren’s founder and managing director Ian Chubb said: “We’re constantly encouraging home owners to think differently about door design. So who better to help us do that, than the creative talent of the future.

“We were truly shocked by the innovative thinking among these young students. Choosing the winners was incredibly tough.”

Deuren works with architects, interior designers, commercial clients and consumers throughout the UK. With more than 100 years’ combined door industry experience, the team has manufactured more than 3,000 doors in the last three years alone.

Amidst the innovative designs for internal doors, there is an emphasis in the need for doors with technical versatility and inlays that enable effortless transformations, such as utilising the concept of movable partition walls.
