Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec land in Tel Aviv

Raised in Bretagne, on the shores of the Atlantic, they are accustomed to wide-open horizons, often returning there to observe natural shapes and formations – trees swaying, the spread of mildew on barks, plant joints, color gradations and lighting modifications.

It is in Bretagne, across the blue-green infinity of forestry and sea, that 17 Screens was born.
17 Screens was realized across a year of research and development, and combines traditional crafts with advanced technologies. Unlike most previous projects they conceived, 17 Screens was developed independently of a pre-commissioned end-product, having been realized as a museum installation from the start. Aquarelle drawings were translated into a set of interrelated units made of glass, aluminum, ceramics and textile mesh, with surfaces creating an interplay of light and color corresponding to changing ambient conditions, like seemingly generic “partitions” that project an individual touch.

The installation “17 Screens”, conceived specifically for the gallery space, incorporates interweaving sequences of modular elements made of ceramics, aluminium, glass, wooden sticks and textile, held together by unique developed joints and hanging systems.


// Cresciuti in Bretagna, sulle rive dell’Atlantico, sono abituati agli orizzonti spalancati, e spesso vi ritornano per osservare le forme create dalla natura – alberi che ondeggiano, la diffusione del muschio sulle cortecce, giunti vegetali, gradazioni di colore e il mutare della luce.

È in Bretagna, attraverso l’infinito blu-verde delle foreste e del mare, che è nato il progetto “17 Screens”.
“17 Screens” è stato realizzato nel corso di un anno di ricerca e sviluppo, combinando mestieri tradizionali con tecnologie avanzate. Diversamente dalla maggior parte dei progetti precedenti, “17 Screens” è stato sviluppato a prescindere da una reale commissione: è infatti stato realizzato fin dall’inizio come installazione per uno spazio museale. Una serie di disegni ad acquarello sono stati tradotti in unità interconnesse di vetro, alluminio, ceramica e tessuto, con superfici che creano giochi di luci e colori corrispondenti alle mutevoli condizioni ambientali; “partizioni”, apparentemente generiche, danno invece un tocco personale allo spazio.

L’installazione 17 Screens, concepita in particolar modo per lo spazio della galleria, riunisce sequenze intrecciate di elementi modulari realizzati in ceramica, alluminio, vetro, bacchette di legno e tessili, tenute insieme da giunti e sistemi di sospensione sviluppati appositamente dai designer per l’occasione.
