Designer Furniture & Lighting by Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec
Meet The Desginer | Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec
Brothers Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec are best known for their major designer furniture contributions to the Vitra Home Collection and inspirational designer lighting for Italian lighting brand Flos. Referenced by modern minimalism and the advancing technology of computer programming, these contemporary design masterminds create utilitarian design objects with striking architectural appeal.
Born in 1971 and 1976, Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec studied at the prestigious École Nationale des Arts Décoratifs and École des Beaux-Arts in Cergy-Pontoise France. After completing his studies Ronan started work as an independent designer helped by his brother Erwan who was still at school. Working together ever since, the brothers established their own Paris-based studio in 1999 creating experimental works from decorative utilitarian objects to industrial architecture projects.
Collaborating with Vitra since 2000, the brothers have become renowned for their refined furniture aesthetic. Inspired by conceptual and minimalist art, Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec have also created an international collection of designer lighting for Flos which combines the balance of passion and material with the influence of everyday sensations and the sturdiness of making things using industrial manufacturing techniques.
