Like little protrusions in nature, Corniches by Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec are informal and flexible shelves. These wonderful Vitra Corniches were designed around the need to find a place for those small items that have no place in the home. In the same way that we hang our belongings on a rock jutting from a cliff before diving into the sea, we need small, informal storage in everyday life too, explains Ronan Bouroullec.

Ronan (born 1971) and Erwan Bouroullec (born 1976) are brothers and designers based in Paris. They have been working together for about fifteen years bonded by diligence and challenged by their distinct personalities.
Vitra is much more than a brand but rather a staple of design. Established in 1950 in Birsfelden, Switzerland, the brand has left its mark in design history through its transcending path. Starting as a furniture producer, it paved its way to manufacturing and ultimately becoming the powerhouse design institution we see today.
