dimorestudio imagines the home of dior with 14 exclusive creations

dimorestudio revisits christian dior’s passion for 18th century décor with a collection of objects imagined for his most intimate interiors. spanning vases, trays, a candelabra, a lighter and an ashtray, place-settings, frames and an umbrella stand, the collection references dior house codes whilst capturing the character of dior.

14 exclusive pieces combine the virtuoso alloying of different metals (gold, silver and bronze) with the interplay of plexiglas and natural woven rattan celebrating cannage that was so dear to monsieur dior. the material echoes the napoleon III-style chairs he used for seating guests at his fashion shows and acts as one of the motifs that punctuates the collection. it sits alongside sophisticated silver-leaf work and golden nuances – the house’s signature color and metal.

britt moran and emiliano salci of dimore studio reference both dior’s style and interests, crafting objects that work like artefacts to evoke this character. they reference surrealism and cubism, two artistic movements christian dior favored as a former gallerist, art collector and friend and admirer of the greatest artists of the 20th century. a rattan umbrella stand features a gold-plated brass and black metal trim, titled ceci n’est pas un vase (this is not a vase), while a series – in smoked gray plexiglas – comprising two real vases, a cubic lighter, an ashtray and tray, is christened cubisme.

elsewhere a basket series, composed exclusively of three vases – two of which feature lunar curves – dialogue with the rattan’s light colors and fine weaves. the candelabra, in bronze, gold and steel, entitled de nuit, rises from the petals of a flower in bronze, a graphic line with subtle plays on transparency. finally, place-settings in satin-finish, chrome-plated steel are charmingly named a côté de toi (next to you) and are embellished with the christian dior signature, while the grand buffet tray, features the iconic initials CD.

the collection was unveiled during milan design week 2019 at the historical palazzo of casa degli atellani. pieces were revealed in a series of settings which played on illusion and trompe-l’oeil effects: a graphic theater dominated by black in which outlines of paintings and plants were etched in white chalk, mingling with real objects, among them pieces from dimore milano’s furniture offering. each piece in the ‘dimorestudio for dior’ collection is available exclusively by special order for a one-year period.
