Modern Dining Tables blog presents to you the designer Alain Gilles. 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. In 2012, he was named “Designer of the Year” by the prestigious Interieur Kortrijk Fair.
Today we will show you a collection of beautiful dining tables designed by Gilles. These tables rest on wireframe-style metal bases that look like ballerina dresses.
This is one of these tables we are talking about. You will be able to find different colours and top materials. Here we love the materials combination of the metal bases with the wooden top. The furniture, which was created for Italian brand Bonaldo, is designed as a contrast to the larger, more solid bases that often support dining tables.
Here you can see this beautiful dining table within a room design set. It gives a special touch to the room and the interior design.
We love this version of the table all in black, it has a very sophisticated look which will also be transmitted to the entire room.
Here you can find the same table but with a different style. This time, it’s a table with a stone top and a beautiful pink metal base. We are in love with it.
“The end result is a graphic table which has a strong personality but doesn’t take up too much room visually,” said Gilles. “It is also a table which generates visual tension and movement as one moves away from or around it.”
The tabletop is anchored by a single point at the centre, making it appear to float above the metal support, which resembles the kind of wireframe model often used during the design process.
“In a way, the base is a subtle mix of tradition and modernity,” said Gilles. The perfect way to explain this masterpiece.
As you already understood, these mass tables are available in several different finishes, and with a wood, glass or marble tabletop. You can choose the best options for your dining room area.
To create the base, computer numerically controlled machines were used to bend and cut each tubular section. The framework was then finished off by hand, by a welder.
