Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec
Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec have been working together for over ten years, bonded by diligence and challenged by their distinct personalities. In 1997, they were spotted by Cappellini, giving them their first industrial design projects. Since then, they have gone on to work with Vitra, Magis, Alessi, Established & Sons, Axor Hansgrohe, Flos, Kvadrat, Kartell, Cappellini, Ligne Roset, Nani Marquina, Mattiazzi, Mutina, Hay and Glas Italia. From designing spaces to furniture, taking on architectural projects to designing textile wall systems or comprehensive collections, the designer brothers maintain experimental activity with Gallery kreo, which is also essential to the development of their work. Several exhibitions have been devoted to Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec including the Design Museum, London and the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles.
In 2012, two exhibitions have been showing their work: Album at the Vitra Design Museum and Bivouac, a monographic exhibition that has been shown initially at the Centre Pompidou Metz and then at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago. In the spring 2013, the Musée des Arts Décoratifs unveiled Momentané, a major exhibition. Also in 2013, it was unveiled the Gabriel Chandelier first permanent contemporary piece installed in the Palace of Versailles. In 2012, Phaidon Press published a second monographic book, Works; in 2013, JRP Ringier published Drawing, a book with more than 850 reproduced drawings.
