Dubbed "the genius brothers" by yours truly, Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec are two of Europe's most innovative and inspired designers, having worked for numerous notable manufacturers (Vitra, Kvadrat, Magis, Kartell, Ligne Roset, Issey Miyake and Cappellini to name a few).

I came across a video of their 'clouds' and had to post it, as well as some old work.  From their site, "their collaboration is a permanent dialogue nourished by their differing personalities and shared perfectionism".
This attention to detail is apparent in 'clouds' as well as in a number of their furniture pieces, especially the 'facett' line for ligne roset; "It's an incredibly precise pattern that creates a faceted shape- a bit like the geometry of a diamond- made up of lots of triangles that have to meet each other perfectly" (

The video of 'clouds' from wallpaper's site is much better but it's massive, so youtube will have to do.  I can't even begin to explain how much I love this piece.  Enjoy!
