If you’re looking for a jaw-dropping design and great outdoor comfort, look no further. The Wicked collection was designed by Brussels-based designer Alain Gilles. By creating an unexpectedly light and airy shape, Alain Gilles managed to shed new light onto the traditional wicker furniture. By combining the warm wicker material with the cold yet trendy steel frame, he aimed to create a discussion between craftwork on the one hand and industrial processes on the other. The collection consists of a lounge chair, a sofa, a coffee table and a side table. The combination of such bold, graphic lines and strong design can rarely be witnessed in outdoor furniture.
The Brussels-based designer Alain Gilles did not follow a standard route. After studying Political Science and Marketing Management he first discovered the ins and outs of the financial world. Still, after a few years, he decided to go down a new path and, with moral support from his wife, to study industrial design in France. Design became his second life.
