Momentané is the name of the retrospective exhibition by brothers Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec at Les Arts Décoratifs museum in Paris from 25th April to 1st September.





The exhibition revisits 15 years of their career with a special 12m-high textile vault installation that highlights their research on space partitioning and modularity, while providing a structure to exhibit their work in the 1000 square metre exhibition space in the Arts Décoratifs nave.





Featuring recent furniture, lighting, spatial design, videos, drawings and photographs, the nave is divided into number of modules using lightweight screens, like the Cloud shelf-partition module (Cappelini), the Algues (Vitra) and the North Tiles (Kvadrat) modular partition, that guide the visitors through the exhibition.





In a separate, more intimate setup, the exhibition continues along the two side-aisle of the exhibition space: the Tuileries gallery looks at their main office and workspace designs, while the Rivoli gallery focuses on the creative process of their work and shows objects designed for a more domestic and intimate space.
