Corniches - Quickship

By Vitra


  • Description

    Like little protrusions in nature, Corniches by Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec are informal and flexible shelves.

    Corniches arose from the need for small storage spaces to spontaneously keep items. "The same way that we hang our belongings on a rock jutting from a cliff before diving into the sea, we need small, informal storage in everyday life too", explains Ronan Bouroullec. And this is the reason that Corniches are neither regular shelves nor simple horizontal surfaces, but rather individual, isolated protrusions in the environments that we create. Whether as a key rack beside the front door, a spot to put everything we need to have at our fingertips in the bathroom, as a pedestal for a small collection of objects or as a large installation, Corniches are a new way to use the wall in the living space.
    The French brothers' design research continuously evolves around flexibility and lightness; Corniches illustrates the idea of creating an impromptu storage area. The Corniches will be available in various shapes, sizes and colours made of high quality plastic.

    Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec

    Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec, born 1971 and 1976, respectively, in Quimper, France, studied at the École Nationale des Arts Décoratifs in Paris and at the École des Beaux-Arts in Cergy-Pontoise. Ronan began independent design work immediately after completing his studies, while his brother, who was still in school, assisted him.

    Since 1999 both brothers have worked together as joint partners in their own design firm. Their work ranges from small utilitarian objects to architectural projects. In addition to the design of domestic and office furniture, vases, porcelain dishware, jewellery and diverse home accessories, a primary focus of their work is the design and organization of interior space.
