BOUROULLEC BROTHERS AT THE MUSEE DES ARTS DECOS
Since they began collaborating in the late 90s, French design duo Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec have created some of the most exciting furniture, lighting and interior design around. Whether handcrafted limited-editions or high-quality industrially produced works, on the scale of spoon or architecture, their designs are always alchemies of form and function. Interested in modularity, nomadism and user autonomy, they seek to provide new solutions to contemporary lifestyles. Via a unique 1,000m2 installation designed by the pair, this retrospective ‘Momentané’ explores three aspects of the Bouroullec brothers’ work. In the nave itself, an installation inside a textile vault draws us into their dreamlike universe, while the Tuileries wing focuses on their office and the workspace designs and preparatory drawings and sketches, and the Rivoli wing highlights their work for more domestic environments, showing their creative process and revealing their work methods. Momentané opens to the public tomorrow.
Until 1 Sep.
