BIVOUAC AT MCA CHICAGO

Studio BOUROULLEC - RONAN AND ERWAN BOUROULLEC

Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec - Bivouac is an exhibition (MCA Chicago / oct 20, 2012-jan 20, 2013) of work by two of the most exciting and innovative designers working today. The brothers not only design elegant and beautiful objects—chairs, sofas, lamps, tables, and dishware—but they also develop pioneering hybrid forms that defy categorization as they shape space in clever new ways. The title of the show is inspired by this multipurpose hybridity, as a bivouac is a lightweight encampment or shelter that can be adapted to its environment just as Bouroullec products are activated by their end-users and the spaces they inhabit.
