Design as a second life. After studying Political Sciences and Marketing Management, Alain Gilles went on to work in the financial world. 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 2007 in order to pursue his own dreams and develop his personal approach to product design, furniture design, art direction and interior architecture. He has since started to collaborate with several international editors such as as Ligne Roset (FR), Buzzispace (BE), Qui est Paul ? (FR), O’Sun (BE-HK), Varaschin (IT), Casamania (IT), Deknudt Mirrors (BE), Zee (BE), Green Mood (BE), XL Boom (BE), Designer Box (FR), Verreum (CZ), Evolution (FR), La Chance (FR), Vincent Sheppard (BE), and Bonaldo (IT).
