Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec

If you are in Paris, checking on the new Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec show at the Galerie Kreo can be a great option according to the Wallpaper Magazine.

With megabrands like Vitra, Cappellini, Established & Sons and Issey Miyake clamouring after their work, it's not surprising that the Breton brothers should sometimes find themselves gasping for air.

Thankfully, they find a vital 'space to breathe' in the framework provided by Galerie Kreo - where their latest body of work is now on show.  Their experimental installations at the gallery, featuring amorphous shelving units and floating wall lights, show them revelling in this freedom.

Covered in a mineral-like, ultra matt paint, the 'Roches' (shelving units) look like mysterious elements that have grown on gallery's surfaces, while the glossy fibreglass 'Conque' lights appear to float beside the walls. Also on display are the 'Lianes' - a dramatic network of interconnected, leather-clad fibreglass lamps.

The exhibition runs until 22nd July, for more information, please visit
