With his playful design Alain Gilles creates entire worlds which are conspicuous for their colour. As the product of a conscious exploration of the possible multiple personalities of an individual object, Gilles has now created a piece of furniture which is designed along strict but at the same time geometrically free lines. The concepts of movement and durability are integrated into the design process of the ‘Big Table’, which was created for Bonaldo and presented at Salone del Mobile 2009. The result is a fusion of function and sculpture.
