Description from Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec:
Our interest in industrial design is linked to the unlimited reproduction of objects. Nevertheless, for the past ten years we have been producing work in the unique framework provided by the Galerie kreo. This helps us to breathe into between other projects.
This unique context has often led us to compare our work for the gallery to the use of a sketch pad, a more instinctive form of research free from the constraints imposed by industry, the norms, weight, size or other issues more or less justified by mass production. Here, we give ourselves the time to explore different media and extraordinary techniques that are rejected by industry, to approach unique skills.
Our work for the Galerie kreo has always produced exceptional events. Our research for the galerie kreo is about magic as much as use.
This new exhibition has a certain delicacy : we use leather to cover electric wires, we cover a set of shelves with a strangely matt mineral-looking paint, and we make mirrored conch lamps. In search of mystery.
