Lines formed around the block during Milan Design Week in April for the cinematic vignettes created by Dimore Studio, the design firm known for its layered interiors, which cleverly incorporate historical references. Once patient visitors got inside Dimore’s Brera headquarters and gallery, they were invited to peer through holes in the wall to see rooms including a psychiatrist’s office, a collector’s pied-à-terre and a seaside apartment. Dimore collaborated with the French fabric house Pierre Frey to make carpets for the installation, which are now available to purchase. There are five designs in total: Broadlooms, in warm shades of gold and bronze, set a louche, ’70s-inspired mood, while the scale of the geometric or stylised floral motifs provide just the right amount of texture for wall-to-wall carpet or, if you’re as bold as the Dimore designers, the walls themselves.
