Most New Yorkers are more than familiar with the trials and tribulations posed by our spatially-challenged living arrangements. However, with every one of life’s obstacles, there’s a potential opportunity waiting just under the surface. That’s exactly what Parisian designer Gilles Belley intended to uncover when he was awarded a grant from VIA, a French organization promoting local design. With funding in hand, Gilles set out to research and develop furniture that would address the needs of modern city living. His solution includes a collection of three pieces formally titled “Rooms,” which includes AREA, WALL and BLOCK, each designed to provide more flexibility for how we function in and define our living spaces.
