Covered in BuzziFelt, the free-standing room divider is made up of a series of five rotating acoustic blinds. With a simple twist, the blinds can be opened or closed to varying degrees to create privacy or open-up a space. Available with a V-cut feature which enhances a stronger architectural look in any space. BuzziBlinds are mounted on a sturdy metal base that comes in different heights and widths with an optional bi-colour and wheels.
Brussels designer Alain Gilles is somewhat of a latecomer to the design world. After studying political science and marketing management, he spent some time working in the financial sector, before going back to study Industrial Design at the ISD in France.
He first joined designer Xavier Lust, later followed by Quinze & Milan, before opening his own design studio in 2007.
He soon developed a very personal approach to product and furniture design, and has since worked with many international manufacturers, including Casamania, Bonaldo, Buzzispace, Galerie Gasserez, Qui est Paul, and Osun ,
For OSun he designed the Nomad solar lamp, a clever alternative to the widespread and often dangerous use of kerosene lamps in developing countries. Launched at the 2012 Milan Furniture Fair, Nomad is durable and portable, and the solar-powered lamp provides six hours of light when fully charged.
In 2012 Alain was named Designer of the Year at Interieur, an award supported by the Museum of Fine Arts, Ghent
