    Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec: Momentané

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

Posted by James Cartwright,

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.
