At the Musée des Arts Décoratifs in Paris, a new monographic exhibition surveys 15 years of research and projects by French designers Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec. "Momentané" overtakes 800 square metres, and is articulated around a generously proportioned central space — the Arts Décoratifs nave —, where a large-scale textile installation presents the designers' modular works — Algues, North Tiles, Twigs, and Clouds.
On one side of the nave, one hundred objects and furniture items are on display, presented in a variety of sequences and paired with several original models. On the opposite side of the nave —— facing the Tuileries Garden — the brothers' projects for collective and work environments are presented, with projects such as the furniture designed for the University of Copenhagen and office systems such as Joyn, WorkBay and Cork Table. "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," conclude the designers.
