The Frame sideboard by Alain Gilles

Who says lawyers and bankers can’t be creative? Alain Gilles is an ex-banker who left the industry to study industrial design and has opened a product design studio making furniture including this the Frame sideboard which was designed for Italian manufacturer Bonaldo. 

It’s a simple, refined piece based on an angular metal frame on which doors and panels with rounded edges have been affixed. The frame shows in the gap between the panels and reveals the structure of the object thereby creating a dialogue between the different materials used to build the object including metal, wood, and marble.
