or Call to Order

The Corde Droit, by renowned designer Ronan Bouroul­lec in collab­o­ra­tion with Kvadrat, draws inspi­ra­tion from Ronan’s penchant for repet­i­tive lines in his draw­ings. This collec­tion of rugs seeks to capture the essence of his hand-drawn lines by assem­bling ropes that mimic their appear­ance when placed adja­cent to each other.

Crafted with metic­u­lous atten­tion to detail, the Corde Collec­tion features ropes metic­u­lously braided from thin New Zealand woolen yarns. This choice of mate­r­ial ensures dura­bil­ity and lends resis­tance to dirt, making the rugs suit­able for various settings.

The rugs employ a combi­na­tion of tie-dyed yarns to achieve vibrant color depth and dynamic visual effects. Through this tradi­tional dyeing tech­nique, the yarn hanks are partially dyed, result­ing in a subtle inter­play between dyed and undyed sections and an organic color tran­si­tion within each yarn.

The result is a collec­tion of rugs with patterns and surfaces that flow in differ­ent direc­tions, creat­ing a visu­ally capti­vat­ing and versa­tile addi­tion to any space.


Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec


Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec are two of the most prolific and in-demand designers working today, and they continually collaborate with the industry’s leading brands, including Alessi, Cappellini, Ligne Roset, HAY, Kvadrat, and Kartell.

Since 1999, the brothers have jointly operated a Paris-based studio, where they produce office, residential, and outdoor furniture, tabletop accessories, rugs, and much more. As they help move the design industry in new and interesting directions, the Bouroullecs look to varied inspirations from the past. They have cited American designers of the 1940’s and 1950’s and Italian designers of the 1970’s and 1980’s as influences.

The duo is obsessed with material clarity, and they often rely on material to guide the design direction of the piece they are working on. For instance, their Officina collection for Magis is defined by its amazingly delicate wrought-iron supports, while their Slow armchair for Vitra features an unexpected knit sling cover. The Bouroullecs have helped shape contemporary office design with numerous products for Vitra, including flexible Workbays and high-back Alcove seating, that add privacy and noise mitigation to modern workspaces.
