The Bouroullecs' next big hit is an installation at Tel Aviv Museum
Erwan and Ronan Bouroullec created a special installation at Tel Aviv Museum of Art. Leaving the realm of product design and taking a step towards art, they created 17 site-specific hanging screens custom-designed for the Israeli gallery’s space. Presented in the exhibition aptly titled 17 Screens, the collection demonstrates the Bouroullecs’ design ethos from the planning stage to the final execution, that is so characteristic of the objects they create for daily use. The presentation is outstanding not only the contexts of the Bouroullec brothers’ oeuvre, but regarding the mingling of traditional craft methods and the latest techniques like 3D printing.
The final installation was preceded by a year-long experimentation and research, and were deeply inspired by Ronan’s visit to Bretagne, where he studied the shapes and forms present in nature. The observations were first translated to paper in form of aquarelle drawings, which served the basis for the finished hanging nets.
For the construction part, they collaborated with French ceramic craftsmen, the tile company Rombina, and Glas Italia, amongst others - the illustrious list signals well that the brothers took as much care and attention to this art project as they do with furniture pieces. The result is a spectacular world of different textures, surfaces, lights and colours, the essence of the Bouroullec universe presented in an abstract form, on display until 26 March 2016.
