PearsonLloyd is a London based design studio founded by Tom Lloyd and Luke Pearson in 1997. The relationship between people, product and place lies at the heart of the studio’s practice. Current commissions include research and development across a wide variety of disciplines including furniture and product design in workplace, transport, healthcare and urban environments. These projects seek to identify and reflect the shifting patterns of behaviour in our contemporary life. The studio supports a collaborative approach in its work that embraces the restrictions imposed by product type, function, material, process, market, client and all else that defines a brief.

In 2008, Tom and Luke were awarded the distinction of Royal Designers for Industry by The Royal Society of Arts, and in August 2012 were named in the top 50 designers ‘Shaping the Future’ by Fast-Co Magazine in New York. Their projects include a wide range from airline seats and interiors to lighting and furniture systems. 

"Ever since meeting Gaye 5 or 6 years ago, we have been inspired by her energy, drive and optimism. Combining the extraordinary culture and spirit of Istanbul with a passion for contemporary design, GAIA&GINO has quickly created a unique place in the world of design culture. Spending time with Gaye in Istanbul, New York, Prague and London, we have developed both a close friendship and a shared commitment to work together to create beautiful contemporary products. Gaye has developed a rich network of makers and craftspeople across various continents, which is the lifeblood of any great collaboration, and this really adds to the potential of the relationship. We hope that the launch of Siluet will mark the beginning of a long and fruitful working relationship with GAIA&GINO."
