Created in 2013, Full Circle is a virtual band by Ill-Studio, Alexis Le-Tan and Joakim. Wonderz of the World is the third release of the band, and is a curated collection of pitched-down (33 rpm) Goa Trance forgotten records, specially edited for the occasion.
Ill-Studio & Christophe Lemaire collaborated on a collection in tribute to French writer Yves Adrien and his 1978 confessions Novövision predicting the revolution of machines in the music history. The collection included shirts, t-shirts, jacquards, trousers and jackets. A compilation disk of European post-punk and new wave music was released for the occasion.
Video Home System is an installation made by Ill-Studio in 2012.
A subjective selection of VHS tapes, symbolizing Ill-Studio's personal golden era of skateboarding, are stacked together in an unstable balance display. The piece was published in the book Neapolis and exhibited during the Public Domaine Exhibition at la Gaité Lyrique in Paris.
In 2014, The Dewaele brothers appointed Ill-Studio art directors for their ambitious new project Deewee. More than a record label, Deewee is a building, a studio, a label, a record collection and a publishing house. The first series of records released between 2014 and 2017 was conceived as an overall body of work inspired by classic encyclopedia collections and iconic library music labels.

In 2016, Chanel commissioned Ill-Studio to give their take on one of their most iconic perfume, Chanel Bleu. The video, featuring the voice of French actor Gaspard Ulliel, shows a perfume bottle warped. This came as a reference to our previous film Twisted Objects.
