“Balancing interiors with the right dose of functionality and beauty, imagining solutions for the most challenging of environments and projects."
Gatserelia Design, founded by Gregory and Alexander Gatserelia in 1985, is an international team of architects, designers, landscape architects and consultants. Since the beginning, the company has grown into a well reputed, trend-setting agency in the world of design, consistently innovating across a variety of different interiors. The company thinks of design as a tool to enrich people’s lives and help organisations succeed. They believe in balancing interiors with the right dose of functionality and beauty, imagining solutions for the most challenging of environments and projects.
Gatserelia Design transforms concrete surroundings into surreal, highly sensational environments, striving for renewal, reinvention and continual evolution in design. Gatserelia Design’s mission is to deliver outstanding and sustainable design ideas and solutions for their clients through the spirit of interdisciplinary teamwork, a passion for beauty, a unique perception of space and material, and a genuine artistic and cultural sensibility. They aim to create interiors that express the personality of their clients through custom-made creativity, which is why each and every project is very unique in its own way and always recognisable by the Gatserelia signature.
Each design is a working and living space that breathes and is made to evolve over time yet never change. From a single element to a collection of items that make up the space, Gatserelia Design’s projects always have a unique signature that adds a special touch to the space which makes them exceptional. For instance, ceilings are often interpreted as a “cover”which is identifiable by how it permeates across the rest of the interior.
Interior design is Gatserelia Design’s primary discipline and raison d’être; they live and breathe interiors. Furniture is a key component that moulds an interior space and adds life, comfort, functionality, and style. From strikingly visual furniture to simplistically appealing concepts, the company’s designs use each item of furniture and the area it resides in as part of a distinctive overall design theme for a home or workspace.
Gatserelia Design has made a name for themselves in the dining industry by designing interiors of some of the most successful and pioneering restaurants while also contributing to their customers experience and encouraging repeat visits.
