Brothers Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec have worked together as joint partners at their own design firm since 1999 and have been collaborating with Vitra since 2000. Having worked on everything from architectural projects to small utilitarian items such as furniture, tableware and home accessories, the brothers are primarily focused on and dedicated to the organization of interior spaces. Shaped from gently smoothed maple wood, L’Oiseau (2011) conjures the sculptural clarity of the wooden objects of Nordic folk art. This sleek little bird adds a natural organic note to modern interiors without being too cute or kitschy. He can’t fly, but since few people can resist picking him up, you’ll find he moves around quite frequently. Made in China.
