Elise Gabriel is a young French designer that gratuated from two famous design schools, Ecole Duperré (material and textile department) and Ecole Boulle (Design department). From her training as a textile designer, Elise Gabriel derives a special sense of materials and their potential in shaping objects. Confronting herself to the industrial constraints of furniture design conception, she opened up a new domain.
As a young independent designer, she currently shaves her time between personal research shown in galleries, spaces or industrial products design and the conception of cultural or pedagogical events. Over the last few years, she has been working in particular for furniture editor Ateliers d'exercises, Centre Pompidou, Parisian famous shopping center Galeries Lafayette, Craft national center for fire and ceramics in Limoges, Dior fashion house, the Mac/Val Museum and the Quai Branly Museum. Her work has been presented in a number of exhibitions in Dubaï, London, Los Angeles Milan, New York Paris and Beijing.
Several of our projects have been selected and sponsored for design special commissions, such as:"Ursule", commissioned by Centre de Recherche des Arts du Feu et de la Terre in Limoges (CRAFT) ; "Ossos", which prototype was acquired by Centre National des Arts Plastiques (CNAP) ; “l’Etreinte du Zelfo”, sponsored by Valorisation de l'Innovation pour l'Ameublement (VIA).
