Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec have been working together for over 15 years, bonded by diligence and challenged by their distinct personalities. From designing spaces to furniture, taking on architectural projects to designing textile wall systems or comprehensive collections, the brothers maintain drawing and experimental activity as essential to the development of their work. Exhibitions of their work have been held at London’s Design Mus um, the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles, the Vitra Design Museum, Centre Pompidou Metz in Paris, the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago and the Arts Décoratifs, Paris.
Their designs are part of select international museums’ permanent collections, including the Musée National d’Art Moderne, Centre Pompidou and the Musée des Arts Décoratifs in Paris, New York’s MoMA, the Art Institute of Chicago, the Design Museum in London, and the Museum Boijmans van Beuningen in Rotterdam. Drawing, published by JRP Ringier in 2012, provides a unique insight into Ronan & Erwan’s design practice containing more than 850 drawings made between 2005 and 2012.
These days, Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec design for numerous manufacturers, including Vitra, Kvadrat, Magis, Kartell, Established and Sons, Ligne Roset, Axor, Alessi, Issey Miyake, Cappellini, Mattiazzi, Flos, Mutina, Hay and more recently Glas Italia and Iittala.
