Dimore Studio: when eclectic and timeless decor describes people

For Milan Design Week the creative duo have created three performance-like exhibitions that exude a sense of timeless living.

"Transfer", exhibition view, Dimoregallery, Fuorisalone 2018, Milan

For Milan Design Week 2018, Dimore Studio have fitted out three spaces around different themes. In the Dimoregallery on the second floor at Via Solferino 11 (staircase on the right) is “Transfer”, an emotional installation dedicated to pieces by the great masters of the 20th century. The gallery is increasingly configured as a space to bring together historic and contemporary design. The title of the exhibition, “Transfer” suggests the notion of a voyage that moves through an eclectic range of cultural atmospheres and aesthetic dimensions. Two rooms bring together a series of pieces from the 20th century in a way that feels like a collector’s archive, representing the inspirations of Emiliano Salci and Britt Moran, the creative duo behind Dimore. The furniture and pieces on show are by Carlo Mollino, Angelo Lelli, Gio Ponti, Carlo Scarpa, Alvar Aalto, Charlotte Perriand and Jean Royère. The spaces created are often inside fabric tents and represent different places, ways of living, pieces of life.

“Perfettammente imperfetto”, Perfectly Imperfect, is the name of the second space on the second floor of via Solferino 11, on the opposite staircase, to the left and is an experiential and conceptual journey dedicated to the latest proposals from Dimorestudio. Designs for the new pieces featured in the interior decor collections “Progetto Non Finito” and “Oggetti”. Purity, simplicity and neutral colours characterise the elements on show. Furniture inspired by the living rooms of Milan and Rome during the 1960s and 70s, expressions of the early signs of modernism to appear in Italy. The elements are juxtaposed and a sophisticated approach to materials comes through that sees bamboo and Vienna straw combined with bronze, polished brass, wood, and dense, intense colours that communicate with the fashion system.

The final destination is via Solferino 22, with “Limited Edition” that will remain open for the entire month of May. Nine pieces created by Emiliano Salci. The designer reworks classic furniture from the 1800s and 1900s, creating a space that is almost performance-like in which music (when we were there it was “La donna invisibile” by Ennio Morricone) and smoke are an integral part of the decor, as is the intense and sensual purple colour around which the installation is based.
