Bouroullec Brothers

Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec are a design team formed by brothers from Brittany in the north-west of France.

The collaboration between brothers Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec is a permanent dialogue nourished by their differing personalities and shared perfectionism.

Their big break happened in 1997, when they presented their Disintegrated Kitchen kitchen system at the Paris Furniture Fair and were spotted by Giulio Cappellini, who gave them their first industrial design projects. Since then, they’ve worked with numerous manufacturers, notably Vitra, Kvadrat, Magis, Kartell, Established and Sons, Ligne Roset and Issey Miyake. Nonetheless, they still actively produce experimental work, of which there have been four exhibitions at Galerie Kreo, Paris, since 2001. They also undertake the occasional architectural project.

Winners of numerous awards, several exhibitions have been devoted to their work, which can also be found in a number of permanent collections around the world. They have published two monographs about their design work. in 2013 they received the A&W Designer of the Year award.
