New designs by Alain Gilles for XL BOOM
Designer Alain Gilles made some serious considerations about his latest work for XL BOOM – the carry away set, the emoji, and the laps collection. While everyone is performing their own tasks, such as B. Office organization, bookcase accessories and dinner ambiance, they shine together.
Taking our daily routines into account, the carry away pen holder is easy to carry wherever we choose to do our work. The divided interior organizes items, while the high sides keep larger items such as a stapler out of sight and clutter without the need for a lid. Combine carry away with an extra compartment to handle other small items that you may need nearby. Made of aluminum and available in different designs and colors.
The graphic paperweight Carry Away prevents your papers from doing just that. This version is reminiscent of old-fashioned weights and is much lighter, but still suitable for the job. The T-shaped handle makes it easy to handle, while the cast aluminum and marble in which it is available simply make it distinctive.
So simple and yet so expressive, the design of the Emoji bookends play with different aspects of gravity. The curve gives us a short and chunky end and a long and thin one, with the name recognizing a double personality. The idea is that they are used appropriately to support larger or smaller books, although they would look just as stunning without books in sight. Available in cast aluminum or marble.
Even when not in use, the Laps candle holder is a stylized piece that captures the light with its generous proportions and the imitated balancing act of the base. The name is warm and inviting and shows how a candle burns itself when it is burned and casts shadows on the “steps” to mark the passage of time. Choose from a variety of finishes and materials, including cast aluminum and marble.
Laps coolers made of cast aluminum are reminiscent of geometric, brutalist architecture, but with a warmer design style. The “steps” on the lip of each cooler connect them to the candle holders from Laps. The inside gives a depth that is different in color from the outside, making this piece a piece that loves the play of light and shadow.
