With the Losanges collection, the Bouroullec brothers continue their study of simplicity and elegance, reinterpreting the traditional Persian rug by using ancient kilim techniques.
Technically complex, the Losanges collection requires great skill due to the combination of 13 colours in the geometrical rhombus pattern, a great challenge for the craftsmen of northern Pakistan.
Aside from the handcraft techniques involved, the Afghan wool is also spun by hand to achieve unique colour tones that make each rhombus different, and each rug a unique item.
Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec the Paris based design brothers from Brittany have been working together since 1998. Ronan is a graduate of the École supérieure des Arts décoratifs in Paris and Erwan attended the École nationale supérieure des Arts in Cergy before starting their own studio. Together Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec have transformed the design industry and offered new perspectives of materiality and purpose.
