A new address in Milan for Saint-Louis, one of the leading French producers of crystal. The design of the space has been assigned to a signature with an erudite, sophisticated language: Dimorestudio.

The space, near the very central Via Manzoni, is on two levels and acts as a style statement: brass, lacquer, plexiglas, carpets. The room visible from the street features two forceful visual elements: the carpeting in an intense, theatrical red, and a grid of metal tubes with a precious finish, almost like scaffolding, to support some of the company’s iconic lamps.

“Dimorestudio has designed this showroom by interpreting the key values of Saint-Louis: know-how, the purity of crystal, the excellence of a heritage of gestures and objects of timeless charm. We have paid close attention to the display of the lighting collections – classic and contemporary – in domestic settings that make it easier to imagine the pieces in your home,” say Emiliano Salci and Britt Moran, the founders of Dimorestudio.

The Milan showroom joins the other spaces Saint-Louis has opened in Paris, Hong Kong and
New York. The new address for this historic maison – dating back to 1767 – also offers a design experience that combines the physical and virtual dimensions: thanks to the app MySaintLouis, clients can create their own configurations and visualize them in 3D renderings, then inserting them in digital views of their interiors.
