‘Regrets, I’ve had a few,’ sang Sinatra in his classic ballad ‘My Way’, while Piaf famously insisted that she regretted absolutely nothing. Somewhere between these two lies Ronan Bouroullec, one half of the distinguished French go-to design duo, the Bouroullec Brothers. ‘We’ve done a lot of disasters.
