This season, Roche Bobois explores the true essence of forms. New creations play on curved and sharp lines to create sleek pieces (such as the Cascade cocktail table) and more elaborate ones (such as the Girasol table with its 16-sided base).
Design after design, this collection unveils a series of lines, squares and polygons that echo the geometric shapes that structure interior spaces. It also embodies the stimulation of the creative mind by new digital capabilities, which allows new and complex forms to be developed such as the winding base of the Serpentine table.
Through this diversity, Roche Bobois brings to life a collection shaped and inspired by underlying geometries.
The new release of the Informel line, an iconic and timeless Roche Bobois product, is one of the biggest surprises of the collection. Designed in 1981 by Hans Hopfer, the Informel sofa with its fully foam structure originally featured a ruched quilted duvet, embodying the 1980s trend of cosy comfort. A huge success at the time, it has now been updated for its return to the Roche Bobois catalogue by using a new elastic technical fabric and random tufts to accent its shape.
This season Roche Bobois also dives into the graphic magic of Jean Cocteau’s drawings. In addition to new editions of certain ceramics, a complete collection is unveiled that draws inspiration from the artworks of the poet, graphic artist and illustrator. From cocktail tables featuring a drawing inserted in a medallion to stunning rugs, this collection is a tribute to French art de vivre (the art of living).
The new Roche Bobois collection is also made of exclusive and unique creations such as the Homepage sofa by Antoine Fritsch & Vivien Durisotti and the Temps Calme sofa designed by the Roche Bobois studio.
