Milan is a wonderful, magical city where some of the most coveted interior design houses have settled home in. Studio and Gallery Dimore is one of the influential design projects located right in the heart of Brera design district on one of the most beautiful streets in the city, Solferino. Dimore is founded by two creative personalities Emiliano Salci and Britt Moran in 2008 as a creative outlet and a showcase of their extensive collection and their view towards everyday art. In the gallery you can see an amazing selection of some iconic pieces by different artists – from Gio Ponti, Gae Aulenti and Gabriella Crespi to the french Charlotte Perri and Paul Levance. The selection is exceptional, eye catching and truly something you must see if you happen to visit Milan.
Gallery and studio Dimore is nestled in a Milanese apartment building with a cosy courtyard and wisteria greens all over it. Large windows and old double doors lead to this wonderful home of art. The studio settles on the second floor to the left and is offering exceptional design and interior ideas and Dimore Gallery is on the same floor to the right – selling historical and one of a kind pieces signed by the artists themselves.
One of Salci and Moran’s latest projects is the Transfer installation: the concept revolves around rooms designed to have inner rooms within like tents filled with historical pieces randomly mixed up an set to show scenes from everyday life. Also, there is a room designed as a warehouse and once in it you can really imagine how a collector stores the art pieces he loves.
Another important collection is the presentation of designer Gabriella Crespi, an influential Italian designer who created furniture and sculpture. In the exhibition there are 7 pieces of metallic furniture installed among piles of sand. The designer originally designed them in the late 1970s and the collection includes different objects such as a mushroom-shaped lamp, tables made from brass and bronze and other geometrically inspired pieces. Displayed against bright fuchsia background across several rooms at Dimore gallery, the objects are chic and glamorous and also timeless – which is amazing given they were produced in the previous century.
