design duo and siblings ronan and erwan bouroullec are perhaps my favorite contemporary designers at the moment. mainly because i am pretty fucking besotted with their "steelwood chair" they designed back in 2007. i must say, it is one of the handsomest chairs i have ever seen. just like fashion, i believe that good design should be about function as it is about its aesthetic value. all the while being completely modern by exploring new ideas and expanding on the old ones. i guess to put it in fashion terminology, the bouroullecs are like the helmut lang of industrial design. high praises i know, but i think it rather well deserved.
