Dior Maison and internationally renowned designer, Philippe Starck, pursue their collaboration for the Salone del Mobile 2023 in Milan. Elevated to the status of works of art, this unique offering comprises of a collection of timeless, elegant furniture which can be discovered from April 18 to 23 in Palazzo Citterio, located in the heart of Milan. An immersive experience, the scenography – will be enlivened by a captivating video and musical installation devised with Soundwalk Collective, a contemporary sonic arts platform led by founder and artist Stephan Crasneanscki and producer Simone Merli. Sophisticated and ultra-modern, the star of the collection is the new Monsieur Dior armchair. 
Starck was first asked to reinterpret the Medallion chair for the 2022 edition of the Salone del Mobile. The French designer made a paragon of Louis XVI style – so dear to Christian Dior – into a tribute to femininity, and in doing so he dreamed up the Miss Dior chair imbued with sophisticated elegance. For this year’s Salone del Mobile, Starck continues to reinvent the iconic Medallion chair as an homage to the emblematic figure of Monsieur Dior.

“After Miss Dior, it was natural to expand the family,” says Stark “ The duo of creations, the Miss Dior Sweet chair and the Monsieur Dior armchair, are perfectly balanced through these essential, existential notions of gravity and lightness, of yin and yang. Miss Dior and Monsieur Dior, Catherine and Christian Dior, the sister and the brother, the chair and the armchair, is the story of a sublime complementary duality.” Available in a range of materials and colours, from polished or lacquered aluminium to fluorescent orange toile de Jouy, the exceptional pieces have been made in Italy and are accompanied by “little brothers and sisters, such as various tables of different sizes, and stools, all of which are extremely elegant.”

The new Dior by Starck collection will be available in selected Dior boutiques from 2024.
