Born and raised in Paris, Gael studied architecture in the United States and has been living in London since 1988. After working for some years with John Stephanidis, Gael partnered with Stephen Morrison and opened an Interior Architectural practice in 2002, delivering exclusive projects throughout Europe for high profile clients, including industry magnates, artists and writers.
Gael Camu’s projects are infused with modernity without being too contemporary or over-designed. “I like to play with geometry and space in a classic sense. Everything is a question of balance and proportions.” For Gael Camu, luxury meets asceticism, playfulness meets a certain kind of severity. Simplicity is always a synonym for an almost monastic elegance. Gael acquired a carpentry workshop in England in order to fully supervise the impeccable execution of the woodwork and deliver exceptional pieces of furniture.
Light, which for Gael is “architecture’s palette.”
The Palladio desk designed for a 1929 apartment by Pierre Chareau for which Gael chose to use rose wood, one of Pierre Chareau’s favorite woods. Commissioned by clients that adore Rome, she had the desk’s surface printed with an architectural drawing of San Giorgio Maggiore. The desk’s surface can be made to order, following the personal wish of each client.
The Invisible Collection has the pleasure of presenting a selection of designs by Gael Camu, available for purchase exclusively through us.
