Dimore studio was founded in 2003 by Emiliano Salci and Britt Moran and are known for their personal, emotive and historical design approach. The studio has designed an installation for a Parisian gallery consisting of textiles with three-dimensional patterns draped over chairs and surfaces.
The installation is displayed in a shop window of Galerie de Montpensier located near the Garden of the Palais Royal. Dimore studio’s colourful fabrics from the Progetto Tessuti Collection were thrown across chairs and piled onto surfaces to form a kaleidoscopic display of pattern and colour, giving continuance the opulent aesthetics of Dimore Studio.

The collection features out of scale patterns and subtle references to the art deco movement, a theme that can be often seen in the studio’s projects. As a whole, the glamorous collection of fabrics was imagined as a combination of dusty and saturated colors.
In order to create the fabrics, the studio used ancient working techniques reminiscent of couture, including embossing, ageing, glueing and laminating, as well as embroidery and other finishing treatments.
“It is an essential part of the experiment to obtain the depth of relief, the contrast between iridescent and matte and the sophisticated subtle shading of colour tones,” said Dimore Studio founders Britt Moran and Emiliano Salci, as they continued, “Indoor fabrics in satin, cotton and silk are designed to offer wonderful three-dimensional effects, featuring a variety of textures and extremely rich and full effects.”
