The doors to BASILE Studio opened in 1994, evolving into a full-service design and fabrication studio in 2008. In 2016 he opened his second art gallery, basileIE, and in 2017 he launched a high-end furniture collection, BASILE Built. Looking ahead, Basile has plans to utilize his years of expertise coupled with his intrinsic sense of structures, space and style for several high-end commercial development projects in 2018 and beyond.
