About Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec

Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec

Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec were born in Quimper, in 1971 and 1976 respectively.

On leaving the Ecole Nationale des Arts Décoratifs, Ronan began working independently, assisted more and more by Erwan, who was then studying at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts de Cergy. They have been working together officially since 1999. Their collaboration is a permanent dialogue, feeding on their individual qualities and driven by mutual requirements.

Giulio Cappellini discovered them in 1997, when their ‘dis-integrated kitchen’ was presented at the Salon du Meuble de Paris. From this meeting was born an uninterrupted collaboration, which was cemented by numerous projects from 1999 onwards.
