The Groove side tables in marble and oak are designed by Brussels-based designer Alain Gilles. With Groove, Alain Gilles and Vincent Sheppard present you a collection of side tables in different sizes and materials, designed to interact perfectly with each other. Thanks to the graphic ‘grooves’ in the marble or wooden top, the tables have been given a specific alignment and direction, which allows to create a dialogue between the lines, heights and materials of the tables.
You can customize your set of tables entirely to your own taste, as you can choose between a top in dark Nero Marquina marble, light Carrara marble or a natural oak wood.
The tables come in three different shapes, each with another height and diameter. Their base is made of thick folded metal sheets for a bold look. By either combining different sizes in the same material for a subtle result, or by mixing and matching table tops in different materials and finishes for a more contrasting combination, you can create a table set that is in perfect harmony with your own interior and style.
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.
