For its U.S. debut, Milanese design firm Dimore Studio made sure to include a bit of its best-known work stateside: the sublime planetary lights hovering over the dining room of iconic Chicago restaurant the Pump Room. Indeed, a scaled-down yet equally stunning residential version of the installation is now part of a sizable assortment of Dimore Studio designs available for purchase in the U.S. for the first time.
Offered through New York City furniture boutique The Future Perfect, the Progetto Non Finito Collection—a selection of which will be on view at the NoHo store through the end of the year—showcase how the firm founders, Britt Moran and Emiliano Salci, have mastered mood-setting furniture that blend rich colors, even richer materials, and an era-traversing appeal. A few other highlights on show include oversized ceiling lamps (the lighting of choice for a Fendi VIP apartment, apparently), low-slung sofa with a pattern also designed by Moran and Salci, and a pair of deep green armchairs made by the same company that produced the velvet train seating in Italy in the early 1900s.
The glamorous showroom, a taste of Dimore Studio’s impressive presentation from Milan Design Week earlier this year, is currently also home to an installation of site-specific handmade wallpapers from Brooklyn-based art and architecture studio Callidus Guild. The group’s gorgeous gold-leaf mirrors are on view as well, lending some extra shine to Dimore Studio’s new chairs and rugs. A closer look, below.
