Atelier Alain Ellouz now available at My Tailor Home, Mumbai
July 14, 2015: Now available at My Tailor Home in Mumbai, sculptor Alain Ellouz’s eponymous atelier expertly uses crystal realisations with alabaster – a mesmerising stone that has fascinated cultures for centuries.
The Greeks regarded rock crystals as ice. The ancient Egyptians prized alabaster, while early Mediterranean cultures viewed them as solidified light. Though difficult to extract, these crystals have remained coveted over decades and have been used by artists in the precious, and often highly collectible, works of art that they create.
Alain Ellouz took up the challenge of giving new form and function to alabaster. In less than ten years, Atelier Alain Ellouz has more than 300 stunning projects around the world today. The master designer uses many innovative techniques to develop his creations, from cutting and assembly, to the treatments necessary to integrate alabaster and rock crystal into avant-garde designs.
A regular exhibitor at Maison & Objet and Salone Internazionale del Mobile Milan, Atelier Alain Ellouz has been shortlisted for The International Product Design Award this year. Bringing his creative flair to India, Alain’s collection of timeless chandeliers and light fixtures are now available at My Tailor Home.
