FOUNDER OF ATELIER REFİNED
Thanks to her mother, who was passionate about Art Deco design and contemporary art, Gael was introduced into the world of art and design earlier in her childhood.
She has enriched her professional background with diverse skills and experiences in art, design and fashion. After graduating from Ecole du Louvre in Paris in art history, she entered the contemporary art world and worked for five years in one of the most prestigious art gallery Galerie Enrico Navarra in Paris. Driven by a desire to explore diverse territories, she worked in the press joining the team of the Nouvel Observateur for fashion editorial.
Her meeting with her future husband brought her to Istanbul where she currently lives and works together in their architectural office CT Design Studio Ltd as interior designer. Her passion for design and decoration, finally led her to create her own line of furniture.
Founded in 2019, Atelier Refined born from a passion for retro design, especially from the 30s and the 70s. Base on an aesthetic that blends past with present, vintage with contemporary.
As those years, the furniture shapes are original with pure and curved lines, including materials such as stainless steel, glass and plexiglass.
The influence of the Art Deco period is reflected in the sleek lines and the precious shiny materials like polished bronze, chrome and lacquered woods.
A mix of styles, periods and materials...
Minimalist, luxurious, refined, with a strong attention to details...
Suspended in time beetween past and present...
Here is what best describes Atelier Refined creations.
