Jean Gillon

Romanian, 1919 - 2007
Jean Gillon, a visionary furniture designer hailing from Romania and born in 1919, left an indelible mark on the world of design. His journey led him to Brazil, where he immersed himself in the study of architecture and fine arts at the esteemed National University. In 1961, spurred by his passion and creativity, Gillon established his inaugural venture, Fábrica de Móveis Cidam, following his migration to São Paulo in 1956.
Gillon's legacy is intertwined with the opulent landscapes of Brazil, where his company flourished, crafting exquisite furnishings for luxury hotels, residences, and retail spaces. Renowned for his mastery of tapestry, Gillon infused each creation with a unique, unmistakable charm.
Continuing his pursuit of excellence, Gillon later founded WoodArt, a testament to his enduring commitment to innovation. This venture showcased a comprehensive range of Brazilian rosewood furniture and decor, seamlessly blending upholstery, leather, and wood to redefine contemporary aesthetics.
