Designed to resemble pleats in a skirt or dress, the skin draws references to Dior’s Japanese-inspired Spring Summer collection from 2007. At night, lights placed behind the slits in the facade emit a white glowBarbarito Bancel was mindful of the building’s retail function when designing the facade. The exterior is also meant to convey the defining qualities of the Dior brand, such as elegance, beauty and refinement, according to the design team.

Objects of Desire: Surrealism and…

Design | October 23, 2019

Surrealism was one of the most influential art movements of the twentieth century. Everyday objects played a central role in its dreamlike imagery: they were alienated, ironized, or combined to create curious hybrids.
