Our very favourite designers Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec created for the summer months special installation in one of the apartments of iconic Le Corbusier`s building Unité d`Habitation in Marseilles.

More and more prolific and precise french designers have fitted an apartment by own designs including Steelwood serie for Magis and last lamp designs for Established & Sons, Venini and Bittossi. Their contemporary shape and color elegance exactly fit into french colorful 1950s style, which we love so much. We present here a quick look on the apartment, as well as compare of Bouroullecs designs with icons of mid-century french modernism of Jean Prouvé, Charlotte Perriand and Boris Lacroix. Confrontation is based on the similar shape logic, use of materials and simple archetypes.
