While furniture is the undisputed central element of a furnishing, this one will only become an atmospherically complete and vivid collage by the inclusion of decorative and personal touches. Fabrics, colours, light, objects and accessories thereby create impressions with which rooms can be shaped and changed according to one’s personal, changing demands.
An important role is played by nature motives since the first known furnishings and also is mirrored in works from both designers Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec. Milled out of maple wood and soft grinded, the wooden bird “L’Oiseau”, designed by Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec for Vitra recalls the clarity of wooden objects of Nordic folks art.
L’Oiseau enriches thereby modern furnishings by a charming note without becoming childish or even kitsch as many other animal figures.Also in our blog:
