DIY, Ready Made Curtain

Now this is my kind of DIY project. A system of parts, completely customizable to work with your individual decor, and simple enough to put together and hang in an afternoon. ‘Greater than the sum of its parts: ‘Ready Made Curtain’ by the celebrated Bouroullec brothers for Kvadrat comes in kit form.’  Of course, this simple idea is a brilliant example of a low cost design solution, with an elegant and sophisticated result. Not afraid to roll up your sleeves, and add your own signature design statement? This could prove to be a lot of fun.

Bouroullec Monograph

Hot off the press, Phadion has released an anticipated and ‘comprehensive monograph, titled Works, documenting the entire career to date of Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec.’ Studio Bouroullec is well known for their collaborative work with design giants such as Alessi, Vitra and Flos. Design projects enjoy varied focus, and include furniture, lighting and interior environments and objects. Each specific and unique, I find their process most intriguing. A holistic approach, from the site or environment, to the finest detail, there is a sense of complete immersion in each and every venture. I can’t wait to get my hands on a copy.

“Works is a comprehensive monograph featuring a wealth of images of our projects, models, drawings that is to say all visual material we found interesting to dig out from the archives of our workshop. It documents what we do by proposing an intuitive understanding, a flowing journey from a project to another. This book also features a complete catalogue section as well as a crossed interview between Rolf Fehlbaum from Vitra, Anders Byriel from Kvadrat, Eugenio Perazza from Magis, Didier Krzentowski from the kreo gallery and design critic Alice Rawthorn.Works is a collaborative project published by Phaidon Press. Design specialist Anniina Koivu wrote all original texts, Sonia Dyakova was in charge of the graphic design and on our end, we embraced this project fully, exactly like how we approach any industrial design projects.”
