  2. Prior to the Bouroullec’s intervention, the concession to furniture in the V&A’s Raphael gallery was minimal: four angular benches marooned along the centre line of the colossal court offered stiff respite. For a few days during the London Design Festival, much of the 600 sq meter mosaic floor will be taken up by ‘Textile Field,’ a softly sculpted platform 30 meters long and 8 meters wide.

    Textile Field is typical of the Bouroullecs in that it is playful and open ended, a sensual space for the user’s imagination: quite literally a vast field for museum visitors to make their own. Ronan Bouroullec describes the atmosphere they envisage as ‘lascivious reverie, a more sensual experience in which you are a little bit more open to be touched, to dream’.

    Colour is another important aspect of the Bouroullecs’ work, and Textile Field brings a totally different colour experience to the Raphael Gallery. It is composed of 13 shades of Kvadrat’s Hallingdal fabric; arranged in bands of greys, green blues, blues, blue greens and greens that blend across the 30-meter stretch.

  3. The internationally leading producer of contemporary textile Kvadrat has had close links with pioneering designers, architects and artists since it was founded in Denmark in the late 1960s, and in the last decade forged a series of significant collaborations with international figures including Olafur Eliasson, Thomas Demand, Roman Signer, Rosemarie Trockel, David Adjaye, Peter Saville, Patricia Urquiola and Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec among others.

    Textile Field, a project by French designers Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec for the London Design Festival at the Victoria & Albert Museum is a dramatic temporary ‘occupation’ of the Raphael Gallery that, for a few days at least, offers visitors a radically different perspective on one of the most important surviving works of the High Renaissance: a subtly altered state that aims to bring a different atmosphere and emotional pitch to the museum environment.

  4. Ronan Bouroullec (b. 1971) and Erwan Bouroullec (b. 1976) were both born in Brittany, France. These two rising stars in industrial design have made their name in the design world at record speed. Ronan and Erwan have already won numerous international awards for their solutions, which arise from the combination of their very different personalities and competencies into a common pursuit of perfection.

    Clouds was conceived when the French brothers were working with Kvadrat on the North Tiles
    project. This is their thoughts about the collaboration with Kvadrat.

  5. ‘By banishing traditional “rectangular” settlements, Clouds coats architecture in a fluid yet dynamic way; bringing surprisingly colourful fabric windows to your place’, says Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec.

    In collaboration with Kvadrat, internationally acclaimed designers Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec have created Clouds, an innovative, interlocking fabric tile concept for the home.
