Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec: L'Oiseau Bird
Vitra Design, Germany
Bouroullec® L'Oiseau Bird (Porcelain or Wood) Figurine (White, Black, Grey, Ivy or Natural) created by Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec and producted by Vitra.
Vitra's L'Oiseau is a minimalist interpretation of classic Eames House Birds used in home decor.
L'Oiseau is available as a wooden bird made of milled maple and sanded to a smooth finish, or as a ceramic figure in a choice of colours. Considerable craftsmanship goes into the fabrication of each piece, making it a unique object with individual characteristics.
L'Oiseau differs from the naivist cuteness of traditional animal figures with its refined silhouette that complements the interior in an elegant way. The wooden version of L’Oiseau is perfected with a beautiful grain pattern, and the ceramic birds get their character from a sophisticated palette of colours. Due to its handcrafted manufacturing process, every L’Oiseau is a unique piece of its own.
Ronan - France, 1971 / Erwan - France, 1976. Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec’s working collaboration is a permanent dialogue nourished by their distinct personalities and a shared notion of diligence with the intention to reach more balance and fineness.
In 1997, they presented their Disintegrated Kitchen at the Salon du Meuble in Paris and were spotted by Giulio Cappellini, who gave them their first industrial design projects, notably the Lit clos (“Closed Bed”) and the Spring Chair. A meeting with Vitra’s Rolf Fehlbaum resulted in their conception of a new kind of office system, Joyn, in 2002. This was the beginning of a special partnership that has borne fruit in numerous projects, including Algues, the Alcove Sofa, the Worknest, the Slow Chair, the Vegetal and L’Oiseau. Since 2004, the Bouroullecs have also been working with Magis, for whom they have designed two complete furniture collections, Striped and Steelwood as well as additional projects such as the Pila chair, the Pilo table, the Central and Tambour tables.
In 2010, they debuted a new collection of tableware for Alessi. Since 2011, they have designed the Piani and Aim lamps for Flos, the Losanges rug for Nani Marquina, the Osso chair for Mattiazzi.
Today Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec design for numerous manufacturers, Vitra, Kvadrat, Magis, Kartell, Alessi, Mattiazzi, Flos, and more recently, Iittala.
