Design Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec, 2011
Solid maple
Made by Vitra

While furniture is undoubtedly the core element of any interior design, it is only when furnishings are combined with decorative and personal items that an atmospherically rich and vibrant collage is created. Fabric, colors, lighting, objects and accessories evoke sensory impressions that allow rooms to be designed and redesigned in line with altered moods and requirements. Natural themes have played a critical role since the earliest known interiors, and are also reflected in the work of Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec. Shaped from solid maple wood and gently smoothed, "L'Oiseau" conjures the clarity of the wooden objects of Nordic folk art. "L'Oiseau" adds a sympathetic note to modern interiors without being at all cutesy or kitschy like many other animal figures.

The two brothers, Ronan and Erwan, have been working together since 1999. Their collaboration is a constant dialogue, nourished by their single identities and strived towards a common goal. Today, the Bouroullec brothers work with numerous manufacturers such as Vitra, Cappellini, Issey Miyake, Magis, Ligne Roset, Habitat and the Kréo Gallery. They were named "Creator of the Year" in 2002, elected "designer of the year" in 2003 and have won multiple other awards. Their creations have been exhibited in many collective or solo exhibitions and are part of some permanent museum collections around the world.

Bros Bouroullec

Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec (b. 1971 and 1976) are a team of two brothers from the Brittany region in Northwest France. They began working together in 1999 and maintain a constant collaborative dialogue that incorporates each personality, and strikes a balance within their mutual quest for diligence and fineness. The brothers work with numerous manufacturers, such as Vitra and Cappellini. Their partnership with Vitra in 2002 has brought about perhaps their most prolific line of work, including the Joyn office system, and notable pieces like the Algues, the Alcove Sofa, the Worknest, the Slow Chair, the Vegetal and L’Oiseau. The brothers Bouroullec continue their vegetation-inspired work of natural and organic shapes and are recognized with various awards, in permanent collections, and in exhibitions all over the world.

Vitra is a Swiss company dedicated to improving the quality of homes, offices and public spaces through the power of design. Following in the tradition of Charles & Ray Eames, who have influenced Vitra’s approach to sustainability in many ways, product longevity is central to the company’s contribution to sustainable development; short-lived styling is avoided at all costs. This can be seen most clearly in the classical pieces of furniture that have been used for decades, had several owners and have then even ended up as a part of a collection.
