Since graduating from the BA (hons) Ceramic Design at Central Saint Martin School of Art in London, Gabrielle Thomassian created Villa Arev in 2017 in Paris. She develops and creates bright and pop ceramics in a contemporary style that is inspired by the work of Bernard Palissy, and Ettore Sottsass or Marco Zanini from the Memphis group. Arev means sun in Armenian. Villa Arev designs are filled with fresh and summery symbols in a holiday-like mood. It is a mediterranean dive. In a few words… Villa Arev is a joyful brand, handcrafting unique pieces or limited editions; objects we don’t necessarily need but which will make you terribly happy.
