Like small, natural protrusions, the Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec designed Corniches are flexible deposit spaces.
The Corniches emerged to place things spontaneously on them, out of the wish of having a place for smaller things in every instant.
”Just the same as hanging things on a stone before jumping in the water, we also need small possibilities to store things in our everyday life”, explained Ronan Bouroullec. This is the reason why the Corniches aren’t normal or still horizontal shelves, but somehow individual, independent and standing alone in their surrounding protrusions that we create by ourselves.
As key-board besides house doors, as possibility to store things that we need instantly in the bathroom, to present a small collection of objects or as large wall installation: Corniches are another utility possibility for our living areas.
The innovative design by the French brothers is more and more focusing on flexibility and weightlessness. The Corniches illustrate the concept of a spontaneous depositing possibility. The Corniches are made out of high quality synthetic material by Vitra and are available in different forms, sizes and colours.
