103 DIMORESTUDIO 3 works by the Campana Brothers, Atelier Oï, Marcel Wanders, India Mahdavi, and Tokujin Yoshioka. A separate, complementary installation was created for the palazzo's courtyard by famed architect Shigeru Ban. Temporary Paper Structure is the latest work from the Pritzker Architecture Prize architect, who previously collaborated with Vuitton in 2006 for its Icônes exhibition. Originally designed in 2004 as an offi ce to sit atop the Centre Pompidou in Paris, Temporary Paper Structure has a unique modular construction and demonstrates the architect's trademark techniques and ingenuity, particularly the use of structural tubes made of recycled paper. Temporary Paper Structure is the newest addition to Louis Vuitton's exhibitions of nomadic architecture, following work by George Candilis (2018), Matti Suuronen (2017), and Charlotte Perriand (2015). S alone 2019 saw the launch of three important projects for Milan- based Dimore Studio. The practice, founded by Italian-born Emiliano Salci and American Britt Moran in 2003, is active in a wide range of residential, retail, hospitality, and bespoke projects and exhibitions. The fi rm is certainly not lacking when it comes to a point of view. Salci recently told Elle Decor that he has a passion for work from "another era" and is drawn to create interiors that are part 1960s, part contemporary. F or the collaboration of Dior Maison and Dimore Studio for Salone 2019, Dimore was asked to create 14 objects inspired by the French fashion house. The exhibition, installed at the exquisitely beautiful Casa degli Atellani, features vases, trays, a candelabra, tableware, frames, and an umbrella stand and is crafted from rich materials inspired by the Cubist and Surrealist schools of thought that were so inspiring for Dior. The settings were created as a play on illusion, with a graphic black backdrop etched in white chalk — stark and beautiful, a mix of glamour and elegance befi tting the exclusivity of the project. The collection will be available to ord er for one year.
