Dariel Studio


About Us

Dariel Studio is a Shanghai-based international studio specialized in Interior Design.
It elaborates unique concepts for living spaces, creative offices, concept stores and high-end hospitality projects (hotels, boutique hotels, spas, clubs, bars and restaurants).
The studio was established in 2006 under the name “Lime 388”. Since its creation, the studio has collaborated with luxury brands and international groups such as Christofle, Hermès, MHD, Starwood, Golden Tulip, etc.
Dariel Studio also designed the F&B concepts of celebrated chef David Laris (20 venues in China) and has a portfolio of more than 50 projects in Shanghai, Sheshan, Zhouzhuang and Beijing.
2011 was a booming year with several great achievements that were widely published all over the world and that led the Studio to receive the “ Best Young Designer of the Year” Award.
Thomas Dariel is the leading designer and founder of the studio.
As great grandson of a French furniture designer, grandson of a jazz musician and son of an architect, he has always drawn his strength and inspiration from his family heritage.
A Parisian Designer by training and tireless traveler, he came to China in 2006 to launch his own studio, Lime 388. After five flourishing years and in the momentum of “Lime 388”’s success, Thomas decided to rename the studio into “Dariel Studio”, as a keystone of his artistic maturity and new ambitions.
