Paris-based brothers Ronan (born 1971) and Erwan (born 1976) Bouroullec form one of the most exciting design teams working today and have collaborated with numerous leading companies in the design field. Their oeuvre ranges from furniture and product design, textile wall systems and comprehensive collections to large-scale installations, architecture, and experimental projects.
Sketching, model-making, and photography are the three main tools used by the Bouroullec brothers in their often time-consuming design process. Both brothers are constantly drawing, filling the pages of sketchbooks. In their notebooks, their fears, doubts, and sense of humour take shape in fantastical creatures, details from nature, and pages and pages filled with abstract forms.
Their award-winning work forms part of the permanent collections of museums such as the Musée National d’Art Moderne, the Centre Pompidou, the Musée des Arts Décoratifs in Paris, the MoMA in New York, the Art Institute of Chicago, and the Design Museum in London.
