Slovenian designer Nika Zupanc has referenced an essay by English writer Virginia Woolf to create a latticed writing room and furniture for French fashion house Dior. When asked to create a piece for Dior’s Esprit – Miss Dior exhibition, Nika Zupanc used Modernist writer Virginia Woolf’s 1929 essay A Room Of One’s Own as a starting point for a small pavilion that a wearer of the Miss Dior fragrance could use to write in.

“The text has come to symbolise women’s emancipation, which detailed the material conditions that restricted women’s access to writing.It conveyed the idea that a woman capable of writing always needed money and space for herself.” With this in mind, she designed a small sanctuary that a woman could use for writing books, poems and letters, or simply reflecting.”
