The brothers Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec were born in Brittany in 1971 and 1976 respectively and have been working together since the mid-1990s. They are united by their quest for perfection, but at the same time it is also a constant challenge for two so very different personalities to work together. In 2007 they were discovered by Cappellini, a grand master of Italian design, who gave them their first industrial projects.
The designer brothers have always remained true to their experimental approach, which is crucial to their creative work, whether this concerns room designs, furniture design or architectural projects, textile wall systems or extensive collections. Several exhibitions at major museums have acknowledged the work of Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec.
