Design by Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec, 2006.
The Panier Table is a container basket in a simple but very communicative shape. Panier is the first object to be designed by Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec for Kartell. Rigorous technological and functional research resulted in a container basket in a simple but very communicative shape. The object is comprised of four modules, each of which form one quarter of a shiny, transparent circle bursting into rays of light. The quarters are attached to each other by tongue-and-groove and are secured with a discreet, opaque joint.
Panier is a container which can be closed on one side with a transparent lid in polycarbonate and it can easily be used as an end table or as a magazine container. Panier is made of transparent polycarbonate and is available in a variety of colors. It's a practical and eclectic object with an attractive and playful appearance.

Ronan + Erwan Bouroullec
Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec were born in Quimper, respectively in 1971 and 1976.
As soon as he graduated from the < Ecole Nationale des Arts Décoratifs >, Ronan began working alone, progressively assisted by Erwan, who was then still a student at the < Ecole des Beaux-Arts > of Cergy Pontoise. The two brothers have been working together since 1999. Their collaboration is a constant dialogue, one that is fed by their separate identities but strives toward a common goal.
They met Giulio Cappellini in 1997, when their "Disintegrated Kitchen" was on show at the Salon du Meuble in Paris. This was to be the starting point of a regular collaboration that has resulted in various projects since 1999. In 2000, Issey Miyake commissioned them to design a shop in Paris for to his new collection A-Poc. The very same year, they met Rolf Felhbaum, Chairman of Vitra, and began working on a new Office Furniture System called "Joyn" which was produced in 2002. This project opened the way for further collaboration.
Today, Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec work together with numerous manufacturers such as Vitra, Cappellini, Issey Miyake, Magis, Ligne Roset, Habitat and the Kréo Gallery. In addition, they work on architectural projects, like the < Floating House >, an artist's Studio, commissioned by "Le centre d'Art de Chatou".
The brothers were named "Creator of the Year" at the Salon du Meuble in Paris, 2002, and have won multiple awards like the "New Designer Awards" of the International Furniture Fair of New-York in 1999, le Grand Prix du Design de la Ville de Paris in 1998 and the First Prize of Saint-Etienne Biennale in 1998. In 2003, they were voted "designer of the year" by Elle Decoration, Japan.
Their designs have been exhibited in many collective or solo exhibitions such as "Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec" at the London Design Museum in 2002. In 2004, 2 solo exhibitions were held at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles and at the Boijmans Museum of Art in Rotterdam. In summer 2005, they took part in a collective exhibition at the Seoul Art Center, Hangaram Design Museum in Korea.
Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec's designs are part of the permanent museum collections of the New York Museum of Modern Art, the "Musée National d'Art Moderne - Centre Georges Pompidou" in Paris, the London Design Museum, the Lisbon Design Museum and the Boijmans van Beuningen Museum of Rotterdam.
After the first publication dedicated to their work < Ronan et Erwan Bouroullec - Catalogue de raison > Editions Images Modernes/Kréo, 2002, they designed their own book: < Ronan et Erwan Bouroullec >, published by Phaidon in 2003.
Both brothers regularly take part in workshops at various Schools of Art and Design.
Kartell works with renowned designers such as Ron Arad, Antonio Citterio, Michele De Lucchi, Ferruccio Laviani, Piero Lissoni, patricia Urquiola, Vico Magistretti, Enzo Mari, Alberto Meda, Paolo Rizzatto and Philippe Starck, who all appreciate the wealth of knowledge that Kartell has about plastics technology and the innovative ways in which it can be effectively applied to items for modern living.
Kartell has over fifty years of experience in designing classic furniture from plastics which has made the company famous in the history of Italian and international design.
Obsessed! I love my Kartell Panier Tables!
I ordered two of these tables in the dark green and I LOVE LOVE them! They add that something special to my living room. I knew from the reviews they would be low (only 9 inches tall) but I stacked them and they are perfect. I put a throw in the bottom one and some of my design mags in the top storage! I will probably order two more to have two stacked sets and finish off my space a bit better. I get comments on them all the time. I had been searching for a while for the perfect table and I found it! Super Happy!

The only negative about this product (panier in sky blue) is the opaque blue tile-like pieces spaced around the basket part of the Panier. Without these, this piece would look elegant and beautiful. Iwoth this, it looks cheap. I own other kartell items of this material so this came as a disappointment. Am using it in an enclosed area with less light so this design flaw is not as obvious
