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. Their Corniches (2012) arise from that same vein, creating small yet useful, unobtrusive yet accessible storage spaces for all kinds of practical and ornamental objects. “The same way that we hang our belongings on a rock jutting from a cliff before diving into the sea, we need small, informal storage in everyday life too,” explains Ronan Bouroullec. Mount these shelves in an entryway to hold car keys, the living room to support pictures, a bathroom to hold toothbrushes or anywhere else desired. Made in Italy.
