If you’re in Chicago any time before Jan 20, 2013, spend a few hours walking through the Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec exhibition at the MCA.
This is one of the few times the MCA has opened up its exhibition space to furniture/object design. I hope the success of this show encourages them to continue the trend.
The Bouroullec brothers are really on to something. They somehow manage to combine high-tech with organic with comfort. A cool mix of simple and complex, sharp angles and slow curves, and an explosion of multiples. Wonderful colors and mastery of materials. Their work with textiles is something to behold.
They are inspiring.
Check it out if you have the chance. You won’t be disappointed.
