About Gordon Guillaumier

Gordon Guillaumier was born in 1966 in Malta. In 1989 he moved to Milan to study industrial design and design management at IED and Domus Academy and later collaborated with architect Rodolfo Dordoni. In 2002, based on his freelance design activity, he opened his private design studio in Milan. Since, he has worked on various projects as design manager and art director, namely Driade for the Altantide e DHouse collections, bathroom accessories for Dornbracht Interiors, kitchens for Rational and Elt, outdoor furniture for Roda and handles for Pamar. Gordon has also designed furniture, lighting and objects for Arketipo, Bosa, CasaMilano, Desalto, DeVecchi, Elica, FontanaArte, Foscarini, Frag, Matteo Grassi, Mazzega, Montina, Minotti, Nobili Rubinetti, Pamar Roda e Varaschin.

With the Shades Collection, Guillaumier explored the newest frontiers of digital printing to give life to floors and surfaces of artistic inspiration. He wanted to capture the freedom and spontaneity of water-painting, a technique where irregularities and imperfections are closely linked to the manual process and represent an added value. The collection realistically replicates the delicate and imperfect signature of the designer’s brushstroke and the overlapping of colours creating unique nuances.
