This volume unveils a little-known side of the daily studio work of acclaimed designers Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec (born 1971 and 1976): their drawing. Printed on newsprint and gorgeously designed, this chunky book has been put together from a volume of sketchbooks and drawings realized between 2004 and 2012, totaling more than 850 color and black-and-white works. Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec have worked together since 1998 for numerous manufacturers, among them Vitra and Cappellini. Among their iconic pieces are the “Disintegrated Kitchen” (1997), the “Spring Chair” (2000), and, more recently, the “Vegetal Chair” (2009). They have also worked with Issey Miyake, Camper and Kvadrat on architectural projects. Drawing is published on the occasion of several exhibitions of Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec designs, including their retrospective at the Musée des Arts Décoratifs, Paris.

For the Bouroullec brothers, sketching isn't just a part of the process of bringing industrial design to life; the profilic French duo are artists in their own right, with major museum exhibits to prove it. This tome catalogues more than 850 of their beautifully abstract doodles, collected from scraps of paper and notebooks they carefully archived between 2004 and 2012. (Jordan Kushins Surface Magazine)
In this beautiful book, product and furniture designers Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec present an assortment of works on paper – everything from doodles and diagrams that explore form and texture to drawings that seek to solve technical problems and cost calculations. Even the latter are wonderfully illustrated. (David Dick-Agnew Azure)
