The Bouroullec Brothers: Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec, French designers born in Quimper (Brittany) in 1971 and 1976 respectively, have been working together since 1999. From industrial design to craft work, from large production runs to research, from the object to public space, Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec‘s creations span multiple fields of expression and have gradually entered our daily lives. Their career has been marked by collaborations from major international companies to artisans of ancestral skills from Europe to Japan. Multiple researches have also led them to work with the world’s most renowned museums.

GamFratesi: GamFratesi’s design takes its creative drive from a fusion of tradition and renewal and in an experimental approach to their chosen materials and techniques. With their dual traditional background, Stine Gam and Enrico Fratesi draw on the classic Danish furniture and craft tradition as well as the classic Italian intellectual and conceptual approach. Understanding a tradition and addressing it actively in the workshop makes it possible to expand on it. From this cross-cultural substrate they create furniture that respectfully reflects tradition while also featuring unique embedded stories, symbols and associations, often expressed in a minimalist idiom.
