The Designer: Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec (born 1971 and 1976) are brothers noted for their design work, which has been featured in publications and museums globally — and spans a wide range from tables and chairs to tableware, rugs, textile walls, office furniture, ceramics, art objects and urban projects. In 2007, the firm’s “North Tiles” design for Kvadrat in Denmark won the D – Design Forum AID Award and has been included in Giulio Cappellini’s design collection. Their work has included a tree house bedroom and a “table sprouting a bowl molded from a single piece of heat-welded Corian”. The designs have been described as representing poetic practicality. “We don’t want to make only functional pieces,” Erwan Bouroullec noted.
The design team works from their company base in Paris, Atelier Bouroullec, for clients including Cappellini, Ligne Roset, Habitat, Domeau & Peres, Authentics, EandW, Magis, Vitra, HAY and Gallery Kreo. They received the 1998 grand prix du jury international at the Maison et Objet furniture fair in Paris, the best new designer award in New York in 1999, a Compasso d’Oro nomination in 2001 in Milan, and designed the interior for Issey Miyake’s APOC shop in Paris.
