Design Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec, 2012
High quality plastic
Made by Vitra

Like little protrusions in nature, Corniche by Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec are informal and flexible shelves.
They arose from the need for small storage spaces to spontaneously keep items. "The same way that we hang our belongings on a rock jutting from a cliff before diving into the sea, we need small, informal storage in everyday life too", explains Ronan Bouroullec. And this is the reason that Corniches are neither regular shelves nor simple horizontal surfaces, but rather individual, isolated protrusions in the environments that we create. Whether as a key rack beside the front door, a spot to put everything we need to have at our fingertips in the bathroom, as a pedestal for a small collection of objects or as a large installation, Corniches are a new way to use the wall in the living space. Corniche is available in various shapes, sizes and colors made of high quality plastic.

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.
