The Belleville family – the Belleville Chair, the Belleville Armchair and the Belleville Tables – is a new collection developed by Vitra in collaboration with the brothers Bouroullec. Varied materials and muted colours characterize the remarkable hybrid chair and versatile tables. Through the harmonious coordination of their forms and materials, the chairs and tables can be attractively combined in a broad range of home interiors and establishments.
“Belleville needs high engineering – visually and physically the chair follows a strictly defined purpose and precise design“, explain Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec. The Belleville Chair is a technically sophisticated hybrid chair of two components: a structural frame in polyamide and a shell available in different materials. A slender black frame traces the calligraphic lines of the legs and back of the chair. The back contour of the Belleville side chair follows a continuous rounded trajectory. The curve of the Belleville armchair, which has forward slanting armrests, changes directions twice and then resumes its momentum. In both versions of the chair, the slender black frame supports an extremely thin shell that tapers from the wide seat surface into a narrow backrest. The surface of the seat shell is the defining characteristic of the Belleville Chair's identity – available in coloured polyamide or moulded plywood veneer. The polyamide and plywood veneer version are stackable (up to 5 units). The plastic version is suited for outdoor use.

Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec
Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec, born 1971 and 1976, respectively, in Quimper, France, studied at the École Nationale des Arts Décoratifs in Paris and at the École des Beaux-Arts in Cergy-Pontoise. Ronan began independent design work immediately after completing his studies, while his brother, who was still in school, assisted him.
Since 1999 both brothers have worked together as joint partners in their own Paris-based design studio. Their work ranges from small utilitarian objects to architectural projects. In addition to the design of domestic and office furniture, vases, porcelain dishware, jewellery and diverse home accessories, a primary focus of their work is the design and organisation of interior space.
One of their most unconventional designs, Algue (2004), was created in this context. The collaboration between the Bouroullec brothers and Vitra began with the office furniture system Joyn, which was developed between 2000 and 2002 and continues to be expanded and refined. Along with Jasper Morrison, Hella Jongerius, and Antonio Citterio, Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec have made major contributions to the steadily growing Vitra Home Collection.
