The design team was discovered by Giulio Cappellini in 1997 at the Paris Furniture Fair and were given their first industrial design projects, the Closed Bed, which was large enough to accommodate a queen mattress and small nightstand, and the Spring Chair, both introduced in 2000. Since then, they have worked with such notables as Issey Miyake, Vitra, Magis, Kvadrat, Alessi, Flos, Kartell, Ligne Roset, and Hay.
Their awards include the Grand Prix du Design (Paris, 1998), the New Designer Award at the International Contemporary Furniture Fair (New York, 1999), Designers of the Year at the Furniture Fair (Paris, 2002), the Finn Juhl Prize (Copenhagen, 2008), the Danish Design Award (Copenhagen, 2010), the Designer of the Year award for Now! Maison & Objet (Paris, 2011) and the A & W Designer of the Year award in 2013. Additionally, the Facett collection (Ligne Roset) and the Worknest office chair both won the "Best of the Best" Red Dot Design Award, in 2005 and in 2008, respectively. In 2009, the Vegetal chair won the ICFF award for outdoor furniture, and the Steelwood chair won the Compasso d'Oro in 2011.
Without doubt, these brothers have already made an impact on the design world, and it 's a safe bet that their work will still be highly valued fifty years from now.
