Dimoremilano took over the historic Cinema Arti building in the San Babila neighborhood to create a dark, moody, 1960s-inspired environment in which to show off its debut collection within it’s “Interstellar” installation.
The Cinema Arti is in an historic Rationalism era building, which now hosts the vision and the evolution of Britt Moran and Emiliano Salci’s galaxy.
The set-up was dramatic, rock, decadent.
The debut of Dimoremilano – a new brand comprising furniture, fabric, object and outdoor collections – by Dimorestudio, is as a result of the continuously evolving creative approach of Britt Moran and Emiliano Salci.
The label joins the studio’s 360 approach to residential, hospitality and retail projects, in addition to Dimoregallery, the historical and contemporary design gallery.
The designers welcomed visitors into the exhibition by guiding them with a leopard print carpet to the lit-up stage displaying the collection.
Flowing coral curtains contrast with the sharp, shiny objects that fill up the platform. the silk curtains divide the space into four areas – office, living room, dining room and a bedroom,
Having each ‘room’ showcase the firm’s creations in their fullest splendor. the overall color palette is dark, illuminated by strong lights that highlight the collection’s cold materials such as aluminum, lacquers, brushed and polished steel, and bronze and laminated surfaces.
The quasi-futuristic collection, consists of modular furniture, including a desk, a bed, lamps, a glass-slab sofa, low tables, and armchairs.
The shapes of this new collection are robust and dry, as evidenced by their well-defined lines.
The aesthetic is decadent (think red curtains and leopard-print carpets), luxurious, and decidedly rock-and-roll (read: neon strobe lights).
Highlights include the striking Tavolo 128 table, with its black-lacquer star-shaped chrome-and-steel top with mirrored mosaic and brass legs, which is on display in the dining room.
Also on view at the brand’s Dimoregallery on Via Solferino is a showcase of designer Gabriella Crespi’s table and lighting re-editions.
Produced for Milan’s Dimore Gallery, seven pieces of furniture by the late artist Gabriella Crespi are installed them among piles of sand for an exhibition called Visioni.
The furniture is displayed across a number of rooms in what used to be the home of the Dimore Gallery’s founders Emiliano Salci and Britt Moran, and is now a dedicated exhibition space.
The seven reissued pieces were originally designed by Crespi in the 1970s and include a mushroom-shaped lamp, a geometric wall sconce and a number of tables, made from brass, bronze and lacquer.
