Bouroullec Brothers at Chicago’s MCA
Thursday, October 11th, 2012
Lucky Chicago. From Oct 20 to Jan 20, 2013, the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago plays host to the first major solo exhibition of work by famed French designers Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec in almost 10 years. Rowan and Erwan Bouroullec: Bivouac is organized by the Centre Pompidou-Metz in France and will trace the evolution of their design career over 15 years and feature their design work for Vitra, Ligne Roset and others. Says the MCA: "This exhibition shows how their work is at once conceptual, flexible, and elegant, offering adaptability for diverse and changing environments and spaces. Since they began collaborating in the late 1990s, the Bouroullecs have brought a visionary energy to international contemporary design. They consider their studio to be a laboratory, continually experimenting and evolving their designs and objects. Starting out with industrial design projects, the brothers have become known for revolutionary, sleek objects and designs for the home and office, such as furniture and storage systems." Sounds like a must-see, n'est pas?
