Palissade is a collection of outdoor furniture designed by Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec for HAY. The collection was designed to fit a wide variety of environments: cafés, restaurants, gardens, terraces and balconies. The construction allows a wide range of typologies with a common formal language. From stools and benches to chairs and tables, lounge chairs and sofas – the collection comprises 13 different elements, united not only by their graphical image but also by their common characteristics: they are strong without being bulky, elegant without being fragile.
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.
