The book will feature all of their work to date, a collection which includes commissions for Vitra, Alessi, and Cappellini amongst others and will open with an introduction by Anniina Koivu, editor of Abitare magazine. There will be ten themed chapters, each exploring a different aspect of the Bouroullecs' career, an illustrated catalogue detailing all their designs and interviews with key figures and collaborators discussing their work.
