Atelier Alain Ellouz is a creative workshop made up of authentic finestone goldsmiths and light scenographers. We pursue a quest to reveal the vibrant richness of alabaster and rock crystal using sleek design in our lighting elements and architectural projects. Our pieces, often valued as works of art, decorate some of the most beautiful luxury interiors around the world. With the same standards of excellence and pure tradition upheld by French luxury brands, Atelier Alain Ellouz pioneers a totally unique art form. Its sculptors and finestone craftsmen demonstrate their superior know-how as they create dialog between shape and light.
The results have gained international success, and the workshop currently commands showrooms in New York City and the Paris region, an artistic foundation as well as an art gallery in the heart of the French capitol.
How does the story begin? Alain Ellouz, self-taught, multidisciplinary entrepreneur, becomes a sculptor during his spare time. In 1995, he discovers alabaster.
In 2005, he takes up the challenge of giving a fresh, contemporary identity to alabaster. The designer, Marion Biais-Sauvêtre, immediately stimulates his creative intuitions into action by imposing high-end aesthetics and innovative technical standards.
