Founded in Milan in 2003 by Britt Moran and Emiliano Salci, Dimorestudio is a full-service, global architectural and design studio that spans residential, retail and hospitality projects, in addition to producing furnishings, textile and lighting designs under the name of Dimoremilano.
Dimorecentrale, the new headquarter near Milano Centrale Train Station, is the heart of the business for the 40-plus person team as well as for Dimoregallery, the evocative setting which features rotating installations and collections of the great masters of the 20th century and contemporary designers. Dimorestudio has become known for creating interiors with a very personal and recognizable style characterized by moody palettes and juxtaposing historical periods and unconventional themes.
Throughout the years, Dimorestudio has developed a range of projects all over the world, from private homes and restaurants to hotels and retail boutiques. Their imprint can be seen at fashion houses like Hermès, Bottega Veneta and Fendi, exceptional homeware collections created for Dior, to retail skincare brand Aesop and hoteliers like Ian Schrager and Thierry Costes.
Their most recent work includes one of the world’s most exclusive private members clubs, The Arts Club Dubai – unveiled in December 2020, and immersive retail experience for the flagship of fashion-forward emporium Browns in London.
“The word ‘Dimore’ in Italian means dwelling but conjures up images of old villas clinging to their aristocratic origins. It lends the name a sense of nostalgia. I think it’s our DNA: we take a historical approach to a project to give it some roots, and then we inject it with more of a contemporary feel.” – Britt Moran
