Brieuc Le Guillou, professionally known as Men Allen, is a French interior and object designer. Born in 1976, he developed at a very young age a particular outlook on art and artistic objects - perhaps because his father was an art dealer as well as a collector. Responding to some sort of calling, intending to master the subtleties of fine decoration, he followed a diversity of paths. Focusing on craftsmanship and tradition first, he studied cabinetmaking for five years before moving on to interior architecture agencies, pursuing his desire to design space as well as objects. In 2008, he founded Koruskan Interiors and collaborated on private projects for mansions, appartments and town houses. Working on those projects for 15 years helped him know the luxury industry from the inside out.
After designed more modern rooms for Crillon Hotel in Paris via Stylagos agency, he decided to recenter his work on his own personal artistic convictions: "it became a necessity for me to go away from it all, into complete isolation, to find who I was and to design the timeless objects that are closer to how I think and to what I am inspired by." Through his furniture design today, Men Allen creates a universe conducive to contemplation. His dynamic compositions, his simple shapes and his wild yet sophisticated materials combine to form a poetic language rooted in culture and imagination.
