Combining simplicity and innovation, the Kaari collection from the renowned designers is the first collaboration between the brothers and the Finnish brand Artek. The standout feature of this collection is the arch-like metal band which brings a distinctive yet subtle character to an otherwise understated design. The ideal versatile solution for a whole host of different interior styles, the REB 004, with its simple arch-like construction, manages to bring a whole new expression to the classic table/desk design, which is often static and unchanging.
Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec, the Breton-born brothers, are the stars of European design and the most promising industrial designers to have emerged from France since Philippe Starck in the 1980s.
A combination of romanticism and functionality runs throughout both brothers’ work. Like all truly talented designers, the Bouroullecs have defined a distinctive visual style, which Jasper Morrison (one of the designers they most admire) described as “thoughtful and disciplined, with a real spirit and poetry”.
