French designers Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec open a new show at Les Arts Décoratifs de Paris that features projects made by the brothers since their collaboration began 15 years ago with groups including Vitra and Kartell.
“The exhibition is articulated around a wide central space, the Arts Décoratifs nave, in which we imagined a gigantic textile architecture that hosts an installation presenting our works on partitions (Algues, North Tiles, Twigs, Clouds). Then, on one side of the nave, a more intimate set up shows about one hundred objects and furniture organized in sequences and paired with a large number of original models. The opposite aisle, on the side of the Tuileries Garden, is dedicated to the collective and work environment with the presentation of the furniture collection designed for the University of Copenhagen and office systems such as Joyn, and more recent works, WorkBay and CorkTable. Momentané showcases all aspects of what we do and it is indeed the opportunity to present research models, as well as about 300 drawings and also films and photography.”
