A creative studio...
For each project of custom rugs, relying on graphic tracks, the creative studio design an unique pattern wich fit with each space. Team members find inspiration in their own culture and creativity and also in our stimulating collaboration with best interior designers. The Studio imagines contemporary and classic collections, in using and revisiting the knowledge and the experience of traditional craft.Classics and contemporary collections
The gallery presents the collections of Marcel Zelmanovitch, the founder of the gallery, as well as showcasing individual designs created by artists for their own Signatures 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 proposed by 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 the selection of materials, and then 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 an artist to help their vision become a reality.
For Galerie Diurne, its raison d’être is to ensure it continues to evolve and develop its expertise in its specific world of art; and to have the knowledge to understand a decoration or interior design project in order to be able to integrate a unique work of art, and in addition potentially enhance ideas, drawings or pieces of artistic research into the creation of 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
