Vitra Corniches arose from the need for small spaces for the spontaneous storage of miscellaneous objects. Vitra Corniches are like rocks jutting from the wall, neither regular shelves nor simple horizontal surfaces, but rather individual, isolated protrusions in the environments that we create.
Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec were born in France in the 1970's, they studied at the École Nationale des Arts Décoratifs in Paris and at the École des Beaux-Arts in Cergy-Pontoise. The brothers are noted for their design work, which has been featured in publications and museums globally — and spans a wide range from tables and chairs to tableware, rugs, textile walls, office furniture, ceramics, art objects and urban projects.
They have a fantastic relationship with Hay in Denmark, as well as Vitra in Switzerland who let them create their unique, innovative designs. Without doubt the Boroullec's designs are set to become Design Classics of the future.
