As a 12-year-old boy, Dirand wrote a 100 page book professing his admiration for Le Corbusier. Dirand would go on to study architecture and opened his first studio soon after graduating. His scaled down curation of space and command of light is faithful to Modernism. More than that, it is cinematographic in allowing people to circulate space, forge experiences, and create memories. Dirand has also worked closely with luxury fashion houses including Balenciaga, Balmain and Rick Owens, who hire him to “frame the globality” of their brands into tangible space.
