WATCH: Highlights from the world of architecture, art and design.

For the first series of “tabletop items” released by Pierre Yovanovitch Mobilier, the French furniture label (known simply as PYMO) has collaborated with luxury brand Dior Maison. The collection of chic everyday objects for the home, titled Midi, comprises fifteen creations, including a cigar box, trinket tray, four serving trays and a duo of tissue boxes. There’s also a pencil pot, two picture frames and a coupling of candle holders, as well as a wall mirror and table lamp. “I imagined a collection where the unpredictable beauty of natural materials dialogues with the rigour of design,” Pierre Yovanovitch says of the new release, which was unveiled at this year’s Nomad fair in Switzerland. “Each object thus asserts its unique character,” the designer adds.

Contributing to the depth of the collection, PYMO chief executive officer, Cédric Morisset, says Midi forms the link between two stories, each centred around an historic manor in the south of France. “On the one hand, there is the story of the Château de la Colle Noire, a property that Christian Dior acquired in the 1950s in the village of Montauroux, France,” he explains. “On the other,” he adds, “there’s Château de Fabrègues, 65 kilometres away, at the gateway to Verdon National Park, where Pierre Yovanovitch resides.”

Like Christian Dior, who spent part of his childhood in the plain of Callian, Pierre was also raised in the south of France. “The Midi collection is not only a reflection of these shared regional ties, but also of the residences which became emblems of their respective brands,” Cédric suggests. “It was said that Dior called La Colle Noire, a ‘simple, solid and noble’ building. In this way, Midi is a ‘simple, solid and noble’ collection.” 

Consistent with all PYMO undertakings, the new collection with Dior Maison spotlights local savoir-faire methods, including the use of traditional woodworking and, wherever possible, sustainable materials. Midi marks the second collaboration between Pierre Yovanovitch and Dior Maison, the first being his reinterpretation of the iconic Dior ‘Medallion Chair’ which debuted at Salone del Mobile in September of 2021. 

The Midi collection by Pierre Yovanovitch for Dior Maison will be available from selected Dior stores.
