Design Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec, 2006. Transparent or smooth batch-dyed polycarbonate. Made in Italy by Kartell. Panier is the first object to be signed by Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec for Kartell. Their rigorous technological and functional research resulted in a container basket in a simple but very communicative shape. Comprised of four modules to form the four fourths of a shiny, transparent circle bursting into rays of light. The fourths are attached to each other using opaque joints and stability is achieved simply by using inserts. The two brothers, Ronan and Erwan, have been working together since 1999. Their collaboration is a constant dialogue, nourished by their single identities and strived towards a common goal. Today, the Bouroullec brothers work with numerous manufacturers such as Vitra, Cappellini, Issey Miyake, Magis, Ligne Roset, Habitat and the Kréo Gallery. They were named "Creator of the Year" in 2002, elected "designer of the year" in 2003 and have won multiple other awards. Their creations have been exhibited in many collective or solo exhibitions and are part of some permanent museum collections around the world. Panier is a container which can be closed on one side with a trasparent lid in polycarbonate and it can easily be used as an end table or as a magazine rack. It is made of transparent polycarbonate and is available in a variety of colors. It's a practical and eclectic object with an attractive and playful appearance. 24" dia. | 8.25" h.
