Istituto Marangoni Dubai recently held an interior design mentorship program led by the renowned Milanese designer company Dimorestudio, founded by Britt Moran and Emiliano Salci. 

The programme aimed to provide students with practical insights into the world of high-end interior design, combining functionality with creativity.

Dimorestudio is a global architectural and design studio based out of Milan and has an impressive portfolio that spans residential, retail and hospitality projects. 

Known for their bold, unexpected and richly layered designs, Britt Moran and Emiliano Salci have created iconic spaces for luxury brands such as Dior, Fendi and Lanvin. The Arts Club in London and Dubai are a few emblematic destinations bearing Dimorestudio’s visual signature.

During Academic Year 23/24, Dimorestudio led an intensive mentorship programme for Istituto Marangoni Dubai’s Interior Design students.

The programme focused on the conceptualisation and design of a unique Dimorestudio Desert Tent Resort, where students were challenged to integrate traditional Emirati design elements with contemporary design concepts. 

The project tested students’ creativity and design skills while considering the cultural, environmental and functional aspects of designing a resort in the extreme environment of a desert landscape.
