Dior invited 17 artists and designers to re-imagine the unmistakable medallion chair, a symbol of the Louis XVI style and emblem of the Maison since its inception. An iconic sign of the Maison from the beginning, it is now reinterpreted by 17 international designers, architects, and artists at Supersalone 2021. You can see the projects at the Palazzo Citterio until Friday 10 September.

From France to Japan, from Lebanon to South Africa – the list of creative influences include Sam Baron, Nacho Carbonell, Pierre Charpin, Dimorestudio, Khaled El Mays, Martino Gamper, Constance Guisset, India Mahdavi, Nendo, Joy de Rohan Chabot, Linde Freya Tangelder, Atang Tshikare, Seungjin Yang, Ma Yansong, Jinyeong Yeon, Tokujin Yoshioka, and Pierre Yovanovitch – are called to rethink, without boundaries to creativity, this chaise medaillon that has the scent of history.
