Paris-based designers and brothers Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec have created a series of experimental yet highly elegant screens for their current solo exhibition at the Tel Aviv Museum of Art.
The result of a research project that involved combining a plethora of materials and seeking inspiration in nature, the 17 designs that are part of the exhibition demonstrate different approaches and reinterpretations of the dividing screen, both as an object and a concept. All of these sculptural creations were designed specially for the exhibition, and assembled using fine materials such as anodised aluminium, ceramic and silk, but also less noble resources such as woven plastic threads and found wooden twigs; these materials were then given the form of long bars or cylinders joined together using custom-made joints and hanging systems.
