Ronan Bouroullec

Ronan Bouroullec (born 1971) and Erwan Bouroullec (born 1976) have been working together for about twenty years now. Their collaboration is a permanent dialogue nourished by their distinct personalities and a shared notion of diligence with the intention to reach more balance and fineness. Their work has covered many fields ranging from the design of small objects as jewellery to spatial arrangements and architecture, from craftsmanship to industrial scale, from drawings to videos and photography.

They have collaborated with leading design companies such as Vitra, Cassina, Artek, Danskina, Magis, Alessi, Galerie kreo, Established & Sons, Axor Hansgrohe, Flos, Kvadrat, Glas Italia, Kartell, Kettal, Iittala, Cappellini, Ligne Roset, Nani Marquina, Mattiazzi, Mutina, Samsung and Hay.

Designs of Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec are part of select international museums’ permanent collections and several exhibitions have been devoted to their work including the Design Museum, London, the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles, the Centre Pompidou Metz, the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago, the Musée des Arts Décoratifs in Paris, the Vitra Design Museum or the FRAC Bretagne.

The Bouroullec studio is located in Paris, and the whole team numbers around eight people.

We are moving as quickly as possible, but are a small outfit. We haven't forgotten about your order! Please allow 2—3 weeks from the exhibition for your package to arrive.

Unfortunately we cannot accept returns, so please choose carefully before deciding which cloth (or cloths!) you would like to buy. If you're not happy with your purchase, might we recommend using it as a furoshiki and wrapping a present for a dear friend. Be careful though, once they see the wrapping they may lose interest for what's inside.

In order to create the beautiful edgeless framed versions of our art cloths, United Measures unpicked the hem and stretched the cotton around the backing material. If you'd like to replicate this process, we recommend using an experienced framer to get this perfectly flat, stretched canvas effect. Otherwise, you do you.

Care Instructions
In most cases you won't need to wash your art cloth, but if you have been using it furoshiki style, it may be advisable that you give it a wash before future usage. We recommend washing it with like colours at 30°C and line drying it out of direct sunlight. The cloths can be ironed, however we strongly urge that you do this on the reverse side!

Colour reproduction
Although every effort has been made to accurately reproduce the colours in the artists' original works, final printed cloths may vary slightly from the images you see on this site.
