Dimore Studio is a Milan based studio design founded by Emiliano Salci and Britt Moran in 2003. They are actually ones of the most top interior designers in the world and very recognized by all their interior design projects.
The studio started as a small interior design studio as a cult place for only an elite group of experts, transformed over time into a globally celebrated phenomenon.
Emiliano Salci is from Tuscany, Italy, and Britt Moran is from the United States. As Moran started out his career as a graphic designer, Salci worked as a furniture designer and subsequently made his first steps in the fashion industry. In Italian, the word “Dimore” means abodes or dwellings, but it also evokes nostalgia.
As ones of the best interior designers of the planet, their research is mostly driven by their personal sensibility fused with an uninhibited yet extremely controlled eclectic approach resulting in precious and dreamy atmospheres with a contemporary design.
When they started out, these Italian interior designers occupied a single room and employed just one assistant. Today, their work, not only as an interior designer but also as furniture designers, is internationally renowned for having worked with major names in the design and fashion industry.
During their careers, Moran and Salci have collaborated with Hermès and Bottega Veneta; designed the hip Casa Fayette hotel in Guadalajara, Mexico; imagined menswear brand Boglioli’s first US flagship (in Noho), and created a range of covetable furniture pieces for Cappellini.
“With every project that we begin and that we approach and we accept to do, we’re always very enthusiastic about the project itself”. “Usually the people who contact us already know our work very well, and immediately we are able to create a relationship with them. So, it does become a bit emotional for us as well” “Emotional in good ways and bad ways. Because obviously, we confront ourselves with the client often, so there’s a lot of emotion around the project itself”- says Britt Moran to Interiors Magazine.
In February 2014 they transformed their apartment into a gallery for the furniture collection they’ve designed and decamped to a new space in Milan, which overlooks the garden of Piero Portaluppi’s modernist masterpiece, Villa Necchi.
“There’s a perpetual link [in their work] between the past and the future.”
They combine different materials and areas maintaining a dialogue between the past and the contemporary. Besides this, they tend to use rich materials like silk and velvet, unusual colors from dusty tones to jewel-like hues.
Dimore Studio interprets memories and creates dreams: they cross the boundaries between art and modern interior design, fashion, and architecture.
