Gala Wright studied physics and philosophy at university, followed by eight years in film products. Her initial passion for design came from an appreciation for 3D design, which led her to gain a distinction in furniture design and realisation at London Metropolitan University.
Combining her knowledge of mechanics and materials, Gala worked as an independent designer and one her first prominent designs was the Loop Lounger which was added to the Italian manufacturer Coro Italia's collection. Gala founded the design studio Viable London in 2005, which works on a range of projects and has had international exhibitions, including work at the the London Design Museum in 2006.
Gala designed the Arris collection, comprising of a lounge chair, sofa and coffee table for Mark Product. The range uses a unique 2-way bridle joint as a distinct feature and encompasses traditional materials, contemporary styling and authenticity - produced by expert craftspeople.
