Ilan Dei Bio


Ilan Dei is an award-winning furniture, accessories, and interior designer who strives to inspire creative, engaging and communal lives.

Once a commercial fisherman who worked the Atlantic Ocean, Ilan is awed by nature and his background includes an apprenticeship with master Japanese woodworker Kai Ito. Yet, he also embraces dense urbanity and harnesses his expertise in digital fabrication tools to realize objects that traverse both worlds. Ilan was introduced to the digital realm during his tenure at metal fabricator Tom Farrage & Company where he produced work for architects Frank Gehry and Thom Mayne.

Today, Ilan’s style is a “lush minimalism” which connects modernism’s design clarity to the warmth of rich materials and color palettes. This practice has led to such honors as 2006 finalist for the American Society of Furniture Designers Pinnacle Awards.

Though Ilan was born in Israel and continues to be influenced by cultures and topographies that span the globe, his home is Venice, California. There, where density fades into the ocean horizon, he launched Ilan Dei Studio in 1996. At the studio, Designers, fabricators and craftsmen work alongside each other to build and share dreams. This reflects Ilan’s values of: family, friends and community. His studio is a hub for Venice creatives—an informal center of gatherings, talks, and the exchange of ideas.

Residential Services

The studio’s residential projects take cues from the architecture and landscape, so there is always a continuity of the design. The projects are contemporary (modern) in essence with strong organic influences from nature. We hope to achieve harmony by mixing and blending boundaries: calm yet evocative, minimal and lush, modern and timeless.
