At DIMOREGALLERY, we can see Transfer, an emotive installation dedicated to Masters of 20th-century design. “The collection we’ve been putting together spans from the 1930’s all the way up to the 1980’s and we also kind of move in between different countries as well, so not just a time, we have French, American and British. We wanted to make sure that we were putting together a collection that best reflects our DNA, choosing it based on emotions and things that we like”, explains Britt Moran.
The name of the exhibit Transfer suggests the idea of a journey across distinct cultural ambiences and behind curtains made in de Le Cuona fabric, you will find the cultivated archives of a collector, which form the unmistakable expression of the creative duo, Salci and Moran. Among the pieces on display are works by Carlo Mollino, Angelo Lelli, Giò Ponti, Carlo Scarpa, Alvar Aalto, Charlotte Perriand and Jean Royère.
Moving in the direction to DIMORESTUDIO, we could visit two collections Perfettamente Imperfetto, signature pieces from the Studio’s collections on display, and Limited Edition, the new collection of nine one-of-a-kind pieces created by Emiliano Salci.

About Perfettamente Imperfetto, Britt Moran explains that we can find the collection in “a very sparked space and the idea was to kind of enveloped the visitor in almost a cocoon line feeling, a kind of incubator, so you enter in this room with soundproofing on the walls and (…) you begin to play with your senses, your earing is a little bit muffled and then you move into the first space”. Where you can find signature pieces from the Studio’s “Progetto Non-Finito” and “Oggetti” collections on display.
DIMORESTUDIO has always more to offer and, for the first time, is presenting an installation in six street-facing windows, a temporary showroom for Limited Edition collection. Britt Moran tells us everything about it: “this year Emiliano (Salci) was really ambitious and wanted to do a lot, so he decided to do his own kind of personal expression of a collection trough limited edition pieces, they are actually one of a kind, there are nine of them and so is the idea of taking any kind of repurposing pieces from late 1980’s hundreds or the 19th century.” And Britt Moran continuous, in Limited Edition collection we can find “large armoires, chest of drawers and keep the most beautiful parts of the wood and them adding in a really kind of a more contemporary lacquers, and then again, there is polish steel and gold plated brass”, everything set up in a colorful environment which serves as a vibrant backdrop with its bright purple carpeting and gold walls.
When asked about DIMORESTUDIO latest works Britt Moran speaks about residential and hospitality projects like “a restaurant in London, we are in negotiations at this moment with the same company that we work with for another larger project. It’s called Leo’s, it’s a private restaurant because it’s in a private member club in London, the Arts Club, so we are speaking with them about another project that should begin any time soon now. We also have several residential projects that we are working on the moment, we’ve just finished a project in Zurich, another one in Florence, that we’re where closing up on and we have a few more residential projects that we are doing in London at the moment”.
“We also have a couple of retail projects that we just finished”, tells Britt Moran, “for example, there is a space in London that we did with Fendi, we have another space that is opening in Saint-Tropez, we have another one that will be opening next year, so we are kind of expanding retail hospitality and residential at the moment”.
