ronan and erwan bouroullec have designed the public square and furnishings, exterior and interior, for tadao ando’s bourse de commerce – pinault collection museum in paris. arriving in the rue de viarmes, visitors are greeted by three shimmering flags carried high on 13 meter flagpoles and united by a series of aluminum-bronze, low bench–barriers, each 12 meters long. inside, the bouroullecs have ranged widely, from monumental glass lights developed together with flos (see previous coverage here), to a variety of furniture and textiles for the various spaces within the new museum.
