In the pulsing and dynamic Miami Design District, Dior arrives with its new sculpted white assembly with a subtle facade lighting project, provoking curiosity due to its absence of transparency, while at the same time evoking elegance and seemingly effortless playfulness.
Behind this Dior Facade original project, we find the Barbarito Bancel French studio who getting inspired from the figurative ‘’plissé’’ style of various Dior creations, introduced this very shape on the building’s skin, not only as cladding, but involving at large the skin of the building.
The core of the store is wrapped within white curved panels made of ultra-high-performance concrete and marble powder overlapping each other and changing verses from floor to floor.
