Insensation® was founded in 1997. We have been designing staircases and frameless doors made from anodized aluminum for over 20 years. All our products express minimalism. We resonate with products which are pure and clean, and combine finishes like glass, natural stone, concrete, subtle colors, geometric shapes and lighting with functional, industrial design.
Aluminum is lightweight and sustainable, and allows luxurious design – like an Italian kitchen, or an Eames chair. Our design principles are our life principles – living in a busy world requires reduction, simplicity, clarity.
Our strategy includes growing our existing brands and regularly introducing new products that offer sustainability, excellent value and long-term quality. To maintain our leadership position, we are continually expanding our sales network in North America and Europe and providing excellently engineered, complete solutions and not just pieces to a puzzle.

After observing too many stairs with unsightly weld marks, visible bolts and industrial cable-wire railings being used in million dollar homes, we set out to deliver a revolutionary new concept in staircase design using anodized aluminum. While the world moved on from wooden and steel cars, from primarily wooden buildings, the staircase market has largely remained antiquated. Apple Computer in its use of modern materials like aluminum and glass was a forerunner in bringing awareness for modern staircases in their flagship stores. With stairplane™, we have taken the concept further, and added integrated lighting, natural stone, concrete and a range of architectural finishes to our unique range of staircases. Aluminum is a metal which allows endless opportunities for design and creativity but which, at the same time, responds fully to modern demands in terms of environment and sustainability.
stairplane™ staircases are the result of 25 years of research and development, manufacturing experience using anodized aluminum and experience in thousands of staircase projects. The unique composition in the aluminum allows us to achieve equal to steel, but with a fraction of the weight, making installation much easier. Aluminum also is a more refined metal than steel and does not give a dated look with time as most steel staircases. Some of our staircase designs were developed over 20 years ago, and like good classic design, are still used today due to their discrete, timeless aesthetic. You can find stairplane staircases in every European country, as well as in the US since 2015.
stairplane™ staircases were selected for the 2017 New American Home near Orlando and were seen by thousands of architects at the 2017 American Institute of Architects annual meeting. The stairs were also shown in Interior Design Magazine and are installed today in high-end real estate across the United States.
As we began working with frameless doors in Europe, years before most the world even heard the word frameless, we gathered extensive experience in what works and what doesn’t. Today, many companies in North America will still try to sell you pieces, a profile here, a hinge there, and convince you that you can make your own frameless doors. For the non-inexperienced, with lots of time to waste, this seems like a reasonable adventure, but after your result falls apart, you will discover that an engineered solution will save you time, money and your reputation. oneplane™ is the culmination of a complete line of proven interior and entrance doors, all frameless or co-planar, all high-end and all installed without tremendous effort or planning time.
oneplane™ doors are installed in luxurious homes across the United States. Our sales network covers all the major population centers including New York, Denver, Los Angeles, Chicago and Miami. The Frameless-Swing FS1 and Frameless Pocket FP1 versions of the doors are available in single, double and ceiling-high versions using proven, modern lockcases, concealed hinges and high-end door hardware, which is pre-milled and pre-installed in our factory. The doors are specified by both architects and design-build contractors who appreciate precise engineering and high quality.
After 20+ years of manufacturing custom staircases and doors for high-end clients, architects and contractors, we decided to offer a selection of our door frames and hardware, to create your own designs. With archiplane™, we bring you a selection of our own architectural design components, which you can use in your projects as you wish.
The Convex® line of door levers and locks is undoubtedly one of the most extensive and highest quality on the market. Designers often get high talking about oil-rubbed-bronze but when you get past the lingo, if you are not using modern magnetic lock cases without visible strike plates, if you are not using 3D concealed hinges, if you are not using magnetic stoppers, flush handles or digital locking, you are missing the technological advances of the last 15 years. Our unique and minimalist Convex® line of door hardware is on display in our studio in the design district of New York. For clients using our hardware with our doors, we also take care of the milling – leaving you even more time for that after work cocktail.
