B O U R O U L L E C

Design duo Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec create everything from seating and rugs to space dividers and lighting. Their 'Losanges' rug (top) is inspired by traditional Persian textiles. The combination of pattern, colour and the rhombus like shape of the rug make it an example of great design. Furthermore, the brothers invented the modular room dividing and sound absorbing system 'Clouds' (bottom). Cloud structures are built up of different shaped jigsaw pieces which can be put together in any formation to create a free standing or hanging structure. Ronan and Erwan's work reacts against the trend for minimal design.
