As of 2018, one of the most successful products in the Cappellini catalogue, the Wooden Cloud bookshelf by Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec, is now available in a new version that further exalts the Cloud’s forms and geometries: originally made of rotationally moulded white polyethylene, the bookshelf is now available in wood, veneered with either bleached ash or rosewood.
Based upon a two-sided structure with hollow compartments, Wooden Cloud is composed of modules that can be interconnected with a retracting joint.
Ronan et Erwan Bouroullec were born in Quimper, France respectively in 1971 and 1976. As soon as Ronan graduated from the Ecole Nationale des Arts Décoratifs, he began working alone, progressively assisted by Erwan, still a student at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts of Cergy Pontoise. Their collaboration is a constant dialogue, nourished by their single identities and strived towards a common goal. They met Giulio Cappellini in 1997, while showing the Disintegrated Kitchen at the Salon du Meuble in Paris. This was the starting point of a regular cooperation that gave birth to various projects.
