A-COLLECTION BY RONAN AND ERWAN BOUROULL

The collection of tables, chairs and benches, designed in collaboration with Hay, will furnish the newly renovated faculty of humanities of Kobenhavns Universiet. 'Fabricated from oak and beech, the motivation for the series was an old wooden university trestle chair by architect Berndt Pedersen. The interpretation features nesting, comfort and durability while maintaining the original typology of the trestle style.' The brothers, Ronan and Erwan Bouroull, describe the impetus for the collection: 'with this new collection it was our ambition to resume an old Scandinavian tradition targeting specific architecture and specific needs in designing new furniture... in our proposal for the new range of educational furniture, we have attempted to create furniture which in form and identity has a clear dating in our age and which in a compelling manner uncovers the functional needs of a university in 2012.' What a beauty!
