A fascinating visual diary that explores the work of award-winning designer Ronan Bouroullec.
Paris-based designer Ronan Bouroullec has been making waves in the international design world since the late 1990s. Together with his brother Erwan, he has worked with world-famous companies like Alessi, Artek, Capellini, Kvadrat, and Vitra, producing award-winning work. His designs have been showcased worldwide and included in the permanent collections of museums that include the Museum of Modern Art in New York, US; the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, UK; and Casa Mutina Milano, Italy. With Day After Day (Jour Après Jour), Ronan Bouroullec invites design lovers into his world through 2750 images that capture his work chronologically.
Published by Phaidon, the book chronicles the designer’s work from 2014 to 2022 through his own photographs. Created as a visual diary that provide a window into his life and creative process, Ronan Bouroullec: Day After Day also acts as a catalog of his designs. Captions in both English and French accompany the photos. Through the 456 pages, readers can discover 3000 illustrations with informative text that offer an intimate look into Ronan Bouroullec’s work, vision, creative process – working on several projects at once, for example – and life as one of the world’s most talented and popular designers working today. Images show not only inspiring designs, but also research, work created alongside his brother Erwan, and glimpses of his studio. Drawings, prototypes, prints, the view from the studio’s window, and the designer’s cat all make an appearance.
In the words of the designer, the book is “a library of details, colors, collages and atmospheres collected over time. It is a manifesto of the elements at the heart of my work and my life: precision, confusion, passion, accumulation, the need for disorder, which gives rise to energy, and the need for emptiness. It is a self-portrait.”
Available now in the Gessato Design Store, the Ronan Bouroullec: Day After Day book is a must-have for design lovers and fans of the designer’s work. Photographs © Ronan Bouroullec, Phaidon.
