Imagination, collaboration, and innovation characterize the work of internationally recognized designers Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec. From furniture and home accessories to distinctive organic forms and structures, the brothers’ designs are at once intriguing and effective, while uniquely accenting the environments they inhabit. Take an exploration of their work with these six eclectic creations.
If you will be in the Midwest before the end of January, don’t miss the brothers’ exhibit “Bivouac” at the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago. The exhibit is open now and continues through January 20, 2013.
Here we continue our series looking at designers who have worked with Magis and Mattiazi. French designer and brothers Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec tick both boxes with their Steelwood chair, stool and table for Magis and their beautiful sculptural Osso chair for Mattiazzi.
The brothers are also part of the excellent Phaidon video interview series which I have included below. In this short clip they talk about their designs, their responsibilities and the poetic quality of a well-made object. We also get a great peek into their Paris-based workspace where the interview was shot.
