Miss Dior, the Dior Medallion Chair imagined by Philippe Starck

“Some have searched all their lives for the little black dress, I have always dreamed of the perfect little chair. This icon of perfection clearly exists in our collective unconscious, in the form of the Louis XVI Medallion chair and its magic oval, which is one of the symbols of the House of Dior. Everything has always brought me back to this chair.”
Philippe Starck


For the Salone del Mobile 2022, Dior Maison is joining forces with Philippe Starck for the first time and has invited him to reinterpret an iconic symbol: the Medallion chair. The internationally renowned creator, famous for his visionary and poetic works, combines the fundamentals of the House with a savoir-faire pushing back the limits of excellence. 

For Dior, he has dreamed up a chair called Miss Dior, a tribute to a certain kind of femininity, imbued with bold elegance. Driven by a “passion du minimum”, he has refined the structure of the famous seat to the extreme, seeking the absolute purity of its silhouette, emphasized even more by the lightness of aluminum, of which Philippe Starck values the nobility and durability, as well as its precious simplicity. A quest for perfection fueled by the aspiration to create an eternal chair, an emblem of longevity.
