A basic pattern, rhythmically reproduced, gives rise to a harmonious succession of colours. Balance, proportion and irregularity are the key elements in the controlled disorder that transforms Lattice into a unique creation. “Rugs are commonly designed as a surface on which a pattern is distributed. However, in the case of Lattice, the pattern is defined as a constructive system to generate the form of the rug itself. The system of coloured bands, in which pattern, form and colour are linked in an intimate manner, creates a different scope.” - Explain the Bouroullec brothers.
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”.
