Philippe Allaeys (1960) is an architect designer. In addition to the design office for architecture and interior, Philippe has been building his furniture collection Alph ’for almost 30 years with his own showroom of 500 m2 in his native city of Ghent. His website shows an overview of his furniture collection, in addition to architectural projects and work for international brands such as E15, Moca, Atelier Vierkant,. . . PHILOSOPHY In Philippe's work 'context and life' is central. Basic shapes are an important guideline. In addition to unraveling, rebuilding and scaling those forms, there is the versatility and user-friendliness that run through his work as a common thread. Often, solid wood or other natural materials have been chosen, minimal and refined with great attention to technical detail and craftsmanship. The furniture collection includes series products and small editions as well as unique pieces that closely match the appearance of an object. Quality and longevity as an art form. Art in which the different languages become one. The high life expectations of the creations make a real recycling process superfluous. A different way of thinking ecologically! Alph’s objects are designed to be used.
