DIM atelier is devoted to the design of custom made, unique and limited edition lighting fixtures. It is a place where the passion for art, functional design, and craftsmanship come together to create exclusive lighting objects.

Each lighting piece in the collection is meticulously handcrafted. The limited edition series are produced in collaboration with small artisan workshops, where every single detail was created by hand. 

DIM atelier is based in Zuiderpershuis in Antwerp, Belgium - a former hydroelectric power station, now a historical monument and multidisciplinary art center.




Vladimir Slavov graduated from the National Art Academy in Sofia. After working as a stage designer for several years at some of the most prominent theater companies in Bulgaria and being nominated for best set design in 2008, Vladimir moved to Antwerp to further his education. He graduated with a master’s degree from the Royal Academy of Fine Arts.

Before devoting himself fully to DIM atelier in the summer of 2013, Vladimir worked on sculptures and light and kinetic installations. He has been featured in numerous exhibitions and art festivals across Belgium.
