RONAN + ERWAN BOUROULLEC

“There’s always teamwork in design,” says Erwan Bouroullec and he would know as half of the acclaimed creative duo with brother Ronan. “For most designers, the first time they have to explain or justify their work is to the manufacturer,” he says. “By then, we’ve spent weeks, maybe months, arguing over the tiniest details.” Born in Brittany, the brothers Bouroullec are among the brightest lights in European furniture design, heralded as the biggest French presence since 1980s icon Philippe Starck.

Fellow designer Jasper Morrison praises the brothers’ work as “thoughtful and disciplined, with a real spirit and poetry.” Recently awarded the prestigious London Design Medal, they’ve been showcased at venues as diverse as Los Angeles’ own Museum of Contemporary Art, Villa Noailles in Hyeres and the Victoria and Albert Museum in London. Their most successful design projects are often the most contentious, Ronan says. “Usually our work is strongest when we disagree, because that’s when we push each other to go further.”
