The main horse of the “Dimor” is the ability to combine. They feel fine rhymes and color, never wrong in the balance.

Elegance and contrasts are key to their concepts. Salchi and Moran are looking for stories with a mood, while remaining authentic Passeists. Their favorite period is mild modernism, Italian 40-50s, which they combine with more avant-garde things from the 70s.

Конечно, с опусами прошлого века — красивыми находками авторства Gino Sarfati и Osvaldo Borsani — они миксуют предметы своего собственного дизайна, из пополняющейся коллекции Progetto Non Finito.

"Vintage chic", as the experts call their style, is highly valued. “The Italians are happy, naturally, creative and talented in the mix,” says Britt Moran, “I tried to learn from them. We admire the outstanding design of the mid-century. We are especially inspired by Joe Ponty. ”
"We demand excellence in craftsmanship and attention to detail."
Three authors, things which are highly valued by “dimors”.
Osvaldo Borsani (1911 –1985). Italian architect and industrial designer, Borsani stood at the origins of the factory Tecno. Initially, only Borsani things were produced under this brand, but later they were supplemented by collections of furniture from Vico Magistretti, Roberto Mango, Joe Ponty and others. Borsani graduated from Milan Polytech and was a member of the Milan Triennial of 1936 with the Casa Minima project, which earned him a silver medal.
Paired tables and lamps, diz. H. A. Jacobsson, 1960s.
During the 1940s - early 50s, Osvaldo Borsani created a large amount of work: cabinets, racks, chairs and armchairs. Among the successes is the D70 sofa, 1954, which has about 20 combinations and a P40, 1955 chaise lounge. This adjustable chair is described as a “car seat”. Tecno's early works are in the collections of leading museums in the world.

Luigi Cachcia Dominini (1913 - 2016). An Italian architect and designer, a maestro of noble blood, graduated from the Milan Polytech together with the Castiglioni brothers. After the war, together with Corrado Corradi Dell'Acca and Ignazio Gardella, founded the Azucena company, which produced both furniture and lamps, and even door handles.

Gino Sarfati (1912–1985). Venetian, he studied at the aeronautical engineer. Later he moved to Milan and started lighting design, opening his own business under the Arteluce brand. In 1954, his lamps 1063 and 1065 were awarded the "Grand Prix" of the international Triennale, and the model 559 won the Golden Compass. Since 1949, Sapfatti became responsible for large-scale projects, including cruise ships and installations for the Regio Theater in Turin. In 1973, he retired and sold Arteluce to Flos.
