Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec
Ronan Bouroullec (b.1971) and Erwan Bouroullec (b.1976) have been working together for about twenty years now. Their collaboration is a permanent dialogue nourished by their distinct personalities and a shared notion of diligence with the intention to reach more balance and fineness. Their work has covered many fields, ranging from the design of small objects such as jewellery to spatial arrangements and architecture, from craftsmanship to industrial scale, from drawings to videos and photography. They have collaborated with leading design companies such as Vitra, Artek, Magis, Alessi, Established & Sons, Galerie kreo, Axor Hansgrohe, Flos, Kvadrat, Kartell, Kettal, Iittala, Cappellini, Ligne Roset, Nani Marquina, Mattiazzi, Mutina and Hay. Bouroullec’s designs are part of the permanent collections of select international museums and several exhibitions have been devoted to their work including the Design Museum, London; the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles; the Centre Pompidou Metz; the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago; the Musée des Arts Décoratifs in Paris; the Vitra Design Museum or the FRAC Bretagne. Currently, their studio is located in Paris and engages around eight people.
