Ronan et Erwan Bouroullec at the Musée des Arts Decoratifs
Designs of the Bouroullec brothers are already part of international museums collections such as the Centre Pompidou and the Musée des Arts Décoratifs in Paris, the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Art Institute of Chicago, the Design Museum in London, and the Museum Boijmans van Beuningen in Rotterdam.
The exhibition called Momentané is showcasing fifteen years of design by the two brothers.
The 1,000 squared-meter exhibition highlights every facet of their production: their objects and spatial designs, their limited editions and industrially produced pieces, their furniture for public spaces and the home, and their drawings, videos and photographs.
In the nave of the museum, a large-scale textile installation presents the designers' modular works (Algues, North Tiles, Twigs, and Clouds). On one side of the nave (the Tuileries Garden side), one can see the furniture collection designed for the University of Copenhagen, and office systems such as Joyn, and WorkBay. On the other side, one hundred objects and furniture items are on display.
If you like design then you should see this. The pictures do not give justice to the great installation in the nave, but at least it gives you an idea of what is displayed.
The Musée des Arts Décoratifs is located in the West Wing of the Louvre.
