Designer Alain Gilles, looking forward to Belgium Art Design

Designer Interview

What do you like most about the upcoming Belgium Art Design event?
“I will be very happy to see what the upcoming generation of designers is doing in general these days. It’s great that for once art and design will be shown on one event. Sometimes, these two seem to be running parallel, but on separate paths. It is the same for fashion, even though the logics are not so different.”

Which designs will you introduce at the fair?
“I was invited by Design Vlaanderen to take part to the fair. On Belgium Art Design, I will be showing my new X-RAY sofa which I designed for the high-end and very trendy French brand LA CHANCE.

Besides that, I will also present my Groove tables which I recently designed for the new qualitative but affordable Belgium brand DESIGN IS WOLF. The brand just opened a showroom in Antwerpen, and will be selling mainly online in order to offer more attractive prices.

My new contemporary foosball table THE PURE, which I designed for DEBUCHY BY TOULET, will be showcased in the common spaces so people can play with it and have fun.”
