While furniture is the undisputed central element of furnishing, this one will only become an atmospherically complete and vivid collage by including 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 designs since the first known furnishings. This is accordingly mirrored in works by 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 folk art.
L’Oiseau thereby enriches modern furnishings by adding a charming note without becoming childish or even kitsch as with many other animal figures.
