bourellec 2.bmpAren't these guys cute? The Bouroullec brothers, Erwan (28) and Ronan (33), have been making a stir in the design world since they graduated from design school and started working together. Quiet, alternatively minded, and with a firm belief in simplicity, there designs have won not only acclaim, but also big contracts with Vitra, Cappellini and Habitat.
The white polystyrene shelving system (Brick) is both shelf and room divider and the long desk is an "open plan" series of office desks (Joyn) with only four (okay, eight really) legs. joyn.jpg
They are having an exhibition in LA on Sunday at the Museum of Contemporary Art at the Pacific Design Center. Watch these guys. MGR
