Gilles & Boissier is an architecture, decoration and graphic design agency. It came to life in 2004 from Dorothée Boissier and Patrick Gilles desire to put forth their vision and idea of space and the art of living. Thanks to the trust and loyalty of Remo Ruffini, owner of the Moncler brand, this duo took off: they are responsible for the interior design of the italian’s 200 shops as well as his private residence on the Lake Como, his chalet in Saint-Moritz and his yacht. Then when Barry Sternlicht, of the Starwood Capital Group, entrusted them with the first building of his new hotel brand BACCARAT HOTELS, Gilles & Boissier showed their talent and how a 18th century French brand could come to life in a city such as New York, at the forefront of the innovation.
The Baccarat Hotel project in New York was the initial spark. It was a matter of time before brands such as Six senses, the Four Seasons group as well as the Mandarin Oriental Group called on Gilles &Boissier, for their projects.
Seventy per cent (70 %) of Gilles & Boissier’s turnover comes from international markets. Nevertheless Dorothée and Patrick have a true desire keep a human-sized company in order to offer a tailored service to their clients: from the conception to the finished product, each venture requires minute strategic reflection on the brand, their concept, the choice of material and the design of furniture.
The architects wish to develop their furniture brand. Gilles & Boissier “Les choses,” was launched confidentially in 2015. The objective for them is to open a shop in the coming months and to offer an on-line site.
Their goal is to represent the art of living à la Française through an intricate and engaging creative collaboration, together, as a couple.
Dorothée’s inspiration comes from literature, exhibits, dance recitals and Patrick’s, from cinematography and cartoons.
