Magis and the Bouroullecs: Apartment 50, Unité d’Habitation, Marseille
Collection: Steelwood Family
Apartement 50: Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec called in this simple way their last project, that of an apartment inside the Unité d’Habitation, the building projected by Le Corbusier between 1946 and 1952. The Bouroullecs present therefore their own interpretation of the famous building, furnishing it with the products designed by themselves in their career and above all with the Steelwood Collection designed for Magis. To quote the designers’ own words: »We decided to feature a selection of objects from our collection of designs which seemed to rightly fit in this apartment. As an echo to Charlotte Perriand and Jean Prouvé’s original furniture of the space, it seemed natural to us to arrange the space around the Steelwood Family by Magis – including some chairs, a table and some shelving systems of the already well-known collection«.
