Les Arts décoratifs:
"The Arts Décoratifs Nave will be showcasing all facets of the work of Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec. Conceived like a retrospective, the exhibition will retrace every stage of their international career, including their very latest creations.
The scenography they have designed for this 1,000 square-metre exhibition will highlight their innovative research into the partitioning of space. Great admirers of Charlotte Perriand, like her they are intensely interested in modula
rity, a concern they have explored in creations such as the Lit Clos sleeping cabin, the Alcove Sofa (Vitra), and lightweight screens built by assembling basic elements: the Cloud shelf-partition modules (Cappelini), and the Algues (Vitra) and North Tiles (Kvadrat) modular partitions.
Beneath an enormous textile vault, their presentation of all these pieces created over the past fifteen years has been adapted to structure this extraordinary space in the Arts Décoratifs Nave."
