Ronan Bouroullec (born 1971) and Erwan Bouroullec (born 1976) have been working together for about ten years now. Their collaboration is a permanent dialogue nourished by their distinct personalities and a shared notion of diligence. Today, Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec design for numerous manufacturers, namely Vitra, Kvadrat, Magis, Kartell, Established and Sons, Ligne Roset, Axor, Alessi, Issey Miyake and Cappellini. At the same time, they maintain an experimental activity which is essential to the development of their work at Galerie Kreo, Paris, where five exhibitions of their designs have been held between 2001 and 2010.
They also embark on occasional architectural projects such as the Floating House in 2006, the Kvadrat showroom in Stockholm (2006) and Copenhagen (2009), the Camper stores in Paris and Copenhagen (2009) and the Casa Camper Hotel’s restaurant, Dos Palillos, in Berlin (2010). Many awards to their credit: designers of the year at Paris Salon du Meuble in 2002, Grand Prix du Design, Paris (1998), the New Designer Award during ICFF, New York (1999), the Finn-Juhl Prize, in Copenhagen in 2008 and two “Best of the Best” Red Dot Design Award.
Several exhibitions have showcased their works: since 2002 – at the Design Museum in London up to now, at the brand new Centre Pompidou in Metz.
