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

For the debut series of tabletop items released by Pierre Yovanovitch Mobilier (PYMO), the Paris-based furniture label has collaborated with luxury brand Dior Maison. Titled Midi, the collection of 15 everyday objects includes a trinket tray, cigar box, four serving trays and a duo of tissue boxes. There’s also a pencil pot, picture frames and candle holders, as well as a table lamp and wall mirror, with each piece in the range celebrating the inherent allure of timber. “I imagined a collection where the unpredictable beauty of natural materials dialogues with the rigour of design,” says Pierre Yovanovitch, interior designer and founder of PYMO. “Each object thus asserts its unique character.”

Contributing to the depth of the collection, unveiled during this year’s Nomad design fair in Switzerland, PYMO chief executive officer, Cédric Morisset, says the Midi collaboration 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,” Cédric 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.
