‘conversation colours’ is a site-specific project by emiliano salci and britt moran of dimorestudio, realized within the historic musée national eugène delacroix in paris. having recently joined the french maisons de illustre because of its historical importance as the atelier of one of the most famous french artists and intellectuals, the museum was a clear reference for the milan-based duo in which their furnishings are reassembled and placed in dialogue with the institution’s artworks. with the modern interpretation of the historic, and the employment of significant design references characterizing their work, salci and moran have turned to the subject of colour, investigating the points of contact between their vision and its use in the artistic practice of delacroix.

presented during DDays design festival 2016, ‘conversation colours’ brings forth dimorestudio’s ‘palmador’ furniture series that is characterized by polychrome, geometric surfaces. with a piece placed in each one of the museum’s rooms, they become the protagonists of the galleries, accompanied by a series of carpets, overlapped to accentuate the motifs created by different shapes and strong hues. the exhibition sequence is indicated by a unique glittered track that continues through different environments, acting as a kitsch accentuation that breaks the compositional balance of the set-up.
