Paris-based designers Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec have been working together since 1998. Raised in a farming family in Brittany, the brothers became interested in design as teenagers. Ronan studied at the École nationale supérieure des arts décoratifs in Paris and Erwan attended the École nationale supérieure d’arts in Cergy before starting their own studio. Together they’ve designed furniture, textiles, rugs, ceramics, and art objects that have transformed the design industry and offered new perspectives of materiality and purpose. Their work has been celebrated in publications and museums worldwide. For HAY, they have created the Copenhague series, Palissade collection, Can Sofa, Elementaire Chair, and Balcony collection.
