Palissade Chaise Longue
Designed by French duo Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec, the Palissade Chaise Longue features a curved frame that contours to your body, creating a relaxed and comfortable reclining position. The elegant design is united by the same symmetrical geometry and graphic idiom as the rest of the Palissade series, engineered to reproduce the same visual simplicity that allows it to integrate effortlessly into a natural landscape or urban setting. Specifically designed for outdoor use, the powder-coated steel has a protective outdoor primer for optimal durability and resilience: this makes it last for a longer period of time and become more beautiful over the years. The Chaise Longue is available in selected colours, and is ideal for terraces, balconies, gardens, and public spaces.
|Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec
Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec, born 1971 and 1976, respectively, in Quimper, France, studied at the École Nationale des Arts Décoratifs in Paris and at the École des Beaux-Arts in Cergy-Pontoise. Ronan began independent design work immediately after completing his studies, while his brother, who was still in school, assisted him. Since 1999 both brothers have worked together as joint partners in their own Paris-based design studio. Their work ranges from small utilitarian objects to architectural projects. In addition to the design of domestic and office furniture, vases, porcelain dishware, jewellery and diverse home accessories, a primary focus of their work is the design and organisation of interior space. One of their most unconventional designs, Algue (2004), was created in this context. The collaboration between the Bouroullec brothers and Vitra began with the office furniture system Joyn, which was developed between 2000 and 2002 and continues to be expanded and refined. Along with Jasper Morrison, Hella Jongerius and Antonio Citterio, Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec have made major contributions to the steadily growing Vitra Home Collection.
