The rug as a frame, expressing new artistic visions and languages. Some artists use these crafting techniques and their high quality materials to imagine bold, unique and impressive pieces.
by Marcel Zelmanovitch
The rugs are designed by Marcel Zelmanovitch, artist, painter and founder of DIURNE. Those creations became the soul of the Galerie which regularly exhibits his artworks.

A creative studio...
For each project of custom rug, relying on graphic tracks, the creative studio designs an unique pattern fitting with each space. Team members find inspiration in their own culture and creativity and also in our stimulating collaboration with the best interior designers. The Studio imagines contemporary and classic collections, using and revisiting the knowledge and the experience of traditional craft.Classic and Contemporary Collections
Galerie Diurne presents Marcel Zelmanovitch's collections , the founder of the gallery, as well as showcasing individual designs created by artists for their own Signature Collections. In addition, for the last 35 years the gallery’s own studio continues to produce both classic and contemporary designs, as well as original ideas from their partners.
Designing rugs of excellence requires the mastery of great craftsmanship and is the result of high-quality materials produced by hand. As in the workshops of the Italian Renaissance, a myriad of artisans still support each artist in the choice of appropriate dyes and materials' selection, later enhanced by the agility of our weavers and the precision of our carvers. This is the mastery that Galerie Diurne puts at the disposal of artists to help their vision become a reality.
For Galerie Diurne, its "raison d’être" is to evolve and develop its expertise in its specific world of art; and to have the knowledge to understand an interior design project in order to integrate an unique work of art, and potentially enhance ideas, drawings or pieces of artistic research into creating a living space. Galerie Diurne draws on its culture to produce a vision of well-being, colour, distinction, and refinement in a way that does not detract from the artist’s original concept. To offer a way of seeing, appreciating and understanding beauty through technique.Follow us on Instagram
