The Bouroullec brothers – Ronan & Erwan – have taken over Paris. Their monographic exhibition, “Momentané,” is now open at Les Arts Décoratifs in Paris.
Eight hundred square meters are dedicated to show the projects the designer brothers have made since the beginning of their collaboration, about 15 years ago.
The exhibition is articulated around a wide central space, the Arts Décoratifs nave, in which they imagined a gigantic textile architecture that hosts an installation presenting the works on partitions (Algues, North Tiles, Twigs, Clouds). Then, on one side of the nave, a more intimate set up shows about 100 objects and furniture organized in sequences and paired with a large number of original models.
The opposite aisle, on the side of the Jardin des Tuileries, is dedicated to the collective and work environment, with the presentation of the furniture collection designed for the University of Copenhagen and office systems such as Joyn, and more recent works, WorkBay and CorkTable.
“Momentané” showcases all aspects of what Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec do; and it is indeed the opportunity to present research models, as well as about 300 drawings and also films and photography.
