A new Parisian show from the Bouroullec brothers promises to be a treat

One of the finest gallery experiences I’ve had in the past few years took place during the London Design Festival 2011 when Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec decked out the V&A’s Raphael Court with Textile Field, a giant carpeted surface raised above the ground that allowed you to pad around the gallery in only your socks, enjoying the works on display in a most decadent and relaxing fashion. Of course the Bouroullecs’ practice extends to much more than carpeting galleries; they design furniture, interiors, functional products and other, fine art-directed work.

So I’m pretty excited, and you should be too, that the brothers Bouroullec have a retrospective show at Les Arts Decoratif in Paris that encompasses their entire career and where you’ll be able to enjoy Textile Field once again, along with a whole host of other Bouroullec creations.

If you like enjoying art in your socks then this is undoubtedly a show not to be missed, and thankfully you’ve got until September 1 to go and see it.
