Dilmos Milano was founded in 1980 as an exhibition space for design. As it evolved, Dilmos began to interact more directly with the world of design, commissioning specific pieces from a selection of designers.
Since 1985, Dilmos Milano has increasingly chosen designers such as Alessandro Mendini, Ettore Sottsass, Ron Arad, Andrea Branzi, Danny Lane, Studio Job, Andrea Salvetti, Ron Gilad, Peter Marigold, Raw Edges, FormaFantasma, Beta Tank, Alessandro Ciffo and Adrien Petrucci, all of whom ascribe to a distinct philosophy.
A uniform style cannot be seen in the works found at Dilmos, but rather a mutual desire to treat articles animating a home or a space as elements that receive its thoughts and transmit its poetry and intentions. The language of design is diverse, because the gesture and thoughts of each designer are unique.
Each piece of furniture produced is a representation of the designer’s deeper thoughts and a means of communicating and interacting with the world. The objects are not merely functional works, but emblems of our hypercommunicative society.
Dilmos Milano’s objective is to create a multitude of experiences through design while working to open the lines of communication between the designer and the individual.
