A combination of fullness and emptiness. The Tail concept – with its one full-bodied ring inside an empty ring surmounted by a straight line – creates the impression of mobility without the complexity of being linked to a mobile structure.
It’s designed to hang from the ceiling and can be used, in different numbers and combinations, to elegantly fill a large empty space. The metal bar tail provides a sense of orientation and ads drama and personality to the feature.
Tail can be positioned at different angles and heights, allowing architects and designers to define their own playful vision. The cable placed at the top of the circles supports the whole weight while the one connected to the tail defines the angle.
The double-sided inner circle can be obtained in a variety of preserved plants and colorful mosses.
The moss-covered element helps to absorb ambiance noise thereby reducing the overall sound of an interior. This contributes to a more peaceful and calm atmosphere.
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 Ligne Roset (FR), Qui est Paul ? (FR), O’Sun (BE-HK), Varaschin (IT), Casamania (IT), Deknudt Mirrors (BE), Zee (BE), XL Boom (BE), Designer Box (FR), Verreum (CZ), Evolution (FR) & more...
