Product Description


'Designs to drool over…Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec … is another dependable and delectable product from the ever-professional pair.' (Albert Hill, World of Interiors)

'Unusual and beautifully produced…stunning illustrations…I thoroughly recommend this book. Like the work of Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec, it delights on many levels.' (Uptown)

'Like the design process itself, this book’s nonlinear structure is personal and also objective, a combination of relationships, reactions and rationales that provides fresh perspectives and inspires new ideas. The accompanying text is a diverse and informative collection of essays and interviews. In the majority of the essays, the Bouroullecs write clearly and expressively about their own work, discussing in detail their working process, the cultural and political philosophies that generate their ideas and the technical issues connected to specific projects. They create a lively critical and aesthetic analysis that runs as a dialogue throughout the book…With its intelligent attention to detail and quality, Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec is such an admirably apt expression of the work of these brothers that it could easily be considered as another of their poetic and meticulously executed design projects.' (Azure)

'With texts by the brothers, themselves, in addition to notable collaborators such as designer Issey Miyake, Rowan and Erwan Bouroullec is certain to be the definitive look at the beginning of what promises to be two long and fruitful careers.' (Metro Source)
