David Report is happy to present some models and construction photos from the upcoming Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec monographic exhibition called Momentané, to be held at the Museum des Arts Décoratifs in Paris. The exhibition opens on April 26, 2013.
Eight hundred square meters will be dedicated to show the projects we’ve made since the beginning of our collaboration, about fifteen years ago. The exhibition is articulated around a wide central space, the Arts Décoratifs nave, in which we imagined a gigantic textile architecture that will host an installation presenting our works on partitions (Algues, North Tiles, Twigs, Clouds). Then, on one side of the nave, a more intimate set up will show about one hundred objects and furniture organized in sequences, says Ronan Bouroullec.
The opposite aisle, on the side of the Tuileries Garden, will be dedicated to the collective and work environment with the presentation of the furniture collection designed for the University of Copenhagen and office systems such as Joyn, and more recently, WorkBay. Momentané showcases all aspects of what we do and it is indeed the opportunity to present research models, as well as about 300 drawings and also films and photography, says Erwan Bouroullec.
