There is also a powerful aesthetic balance in the Bouroullecs’ work. Their designs do not make noise but are simply at rest in their own strong appearance. In 10-20 years, I’m sure that the Bouroullecs will be compared to Ray and Charles Eames.’ Rolf Hay
Competent. Precise. Disciplined. Three words that commonly used about the brothers Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec. Along with ‘passionate’, ‘technically skilled’ and ‘innovative’. The aesthetic aspect is clearly in focus in the drawings, which seem to be a free creative space that helps them develop new approaches to their work. The lines, the colours and the overall idea that, in their own description, is aimed primarily at getting to the core of the internal logic of the assignment. This is where the solutions lie, and where new ideas emerge.
