Wallpaper* Design Awards 2016 – R. & E. Bouroullec designer of the year


We are very happy and proud to announce that Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec have won the WALLPAPER* Design Award 2016 of “Designers of the Year”

The judges of the WALLPAPER* Design Awards for 2016 were David Adjaye, Delfina Delettrez, Konstantin Grcic, George Lois, Eddie Redmayne et Patricia Urquiola.

“The Breton brothers’ diverse output last year was elegant and modern. They created the Kiosk –  a new modular pavilion, commissioned by Emerige and produced by Galerie kreo, that was shown in the Tuileries Gardens during the Fiac Art Fair in Paris. Outdoor pieces for Kettal and Hay and tables and chairs for Vitra (pictured, above) juxtaposed archetypal shapes with a contemporary aesthetic. Most impressive were their ‘Kaari’ tables and shelves for Artek, focusing on a triangular element, and their handsome ‘Serif’ TV for Samsung. With a mix of vintage looks, contemporary sleekness and technology, the duo has shown a more profound versatility than ever before.”
