Additional Information


Brothers Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec founded their Paris-based design firm in 1999, where they design architectural projects, large-scale art installations, furniture, rugs, tableware and home accessories. Their work has been exhibited worldwide, from MoMA in New York to Centre Pompidou in Paris to Tel Aviv Museum of Art. For the Danish design collective HAY, the brothers designed the Elementaire Side Chair (2018), which appears delicate but is strong enough for everyday use. “The starting point was to do a plastic chair that does not look like a plastic chair,” says Ronan. “Elementaire is a mix of simplicity and delicacy, and that’s it.” The design of this chair was also an opportunity for the Bouroullecs to prove that even when you’re making a mass-produced plastic chair, you don’t have to sacrifice form or color.” We wanted to make an inexpensive chair and make it as beautiful as possible,” says Erwan. “It’s beautiful in terms of being extremely well designed. It’s not too loud, not too shy, just exactly balanced.” Crafted from UV-resistant polypropylene. Made in Denmark.

  • This chair has a matte surface with slight texture.
  • Natural production marks and small areas of inconsistent color are visible. These are results of the manufacturing process and not defects.
