The designers and brothers Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec have become iconic contemporary designers. They have worked prolifically over the 1990s and 2010s, to create unexpected yet practical designs for the world's largest furniture and lighting manufacturers. These include HAY, Vitra, and Flos amongst many others.
The brothers were born in Quimper, in north-west France, both going on to study at the École Nationale des Arts Décoratifs and the École des Beaux-Arts in Cergy-Pontoise. The pair established their own studio in 1999, working across the discipline, in furniture, ceramics, interior schemes, jewellery and storage.
