About Alain Gilles

The fair and generous design

Design as a second life. After studying Political Sciences and Marketing Management, Alain Gilles went on to work in the international financial world for 5 years. But one has to live his own life. So, thanks to the moral support of his wife, he went back to studying Industrial design in France.

He opened his own studio in late 2007 in order to pursue his own dreams and develop his personal approach to product design, furniture design, art direction and scenography. He has since started to collaborate with several international editors such as Qui est Paul ?, Galerie Gosserez Paris, Magnitude, O’Sun, La Chance, Evolution, Buzzispace, Casamania and Bonaldo.

Several of his products have been awarded international prices, such as the Henry Van De Velde Label, the Design for Asia Golden Award, The “Red Dot Best of the Best” for the Welded table and the Good Design award for the Big Table.

In 2012, he was named “Designer of the Year”  by the prestigious Interieur Kortrijk Fair.
