Innovation and originality are the calling cards for Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec. Their designs have earned them widespread recognition through their use of unique materials and unusual forms. Combining contemporary art with historic furniture designs, their creations continually evolve to offer a novel aesthetic experience.
“Two years ago when the Design Museum decided to do a retrospect of our work, it was sort of scary to have to look back at where we came from, but it was also interesting to see how things were linked together. It was a tool for us to understand what we had done over the past five years,” says Ronan Bouroullec.
Considered the prized rising stars of European design, the Bouroullec Brothers have designed for top product manufacturers including Vitra, Issey Miyake, Kvadrat, Cappellini, Ligne Roset and Habitat. Nonetheless, they continue to exhibit experimental work to further their development, while even taking on an architectural project every now and again.
