Created by Sacha Lakic, a designer with a passion for cutting-edge technology, Bubble 2 expresses the balance between innovation, function and emotion. Inspired by natural and mineral forms and entirely handmade, its design required the development of specific stretch fabrics that perfectly fit its round contours. With its unique style, the Bubble sofa, in straight or rounded version, is an iconic model in the Roche Bobois collection.
A re-issued, emblematic Hans Hopfer classic from 1971, Informel reveals the original design’s inspiration with slight developmental modifications that emphasise aspects of contemporary lifestyle and evolution. The random tufted design is upholstered by a unique stretch mesh fabric which fits the shape of the sofa precisely, creating an aesthetically pleasing harmony. As with many Roche Bobois models, it is available in various sizes and different colours.
Enjoy the outdoors almost at ground level. For the first time, the Mah Jong – a Roche Bobois best-seller – is available in the Mah Jong Outdoor version, maintaining the endless modular combinations that made it such a success. A metal base with a random perforated pattern supports cushions in refreshing colours. It also features trays on the sides and behind the seats for holding glasses, towels, or sunscreen.
Mah Jong Outdoor is presented here in a new combination of Missoni Home fabrics, both elegant and exuberant.
Designed by the renowned pair Antoine Fritsch & Vivien Durisotti, who derive their designs from natural environments, the Presage Sofa is inspired by the shape of pebbles in nature – both light and welcoming. The armrests are offset from the structure and all the cushions are very plump. Superb comfort is owed to a deep ergonomic structure and seats in tri-density foam, soft independent lumbar cushions and wide rounded backs. Presented in off-white Orsetto Flex textured fabric, a fabric type which is trending worldwide currently.
PULP is the first collaboration between Catalan designer Eugeni Quitllet and Roche Bobois: a collection of tables, chairs and armchairs with a biomorphic aesthetic that eschews straight lines and is complemented by refined finishes.
Inspired by the living world, the collection draws on the dissociation of elements: the designer imagined each piece as a cluster of molecules!
The Temps Calme Sofa is modular and designed by Studio Roche Bobois. Upholstered in specified outdoor fabrics: padded Meridien and plain Meridien, its seat and back cushions are composed of Dryfeel foam and polyester fibres. Structure in solid okoume and okoume plywood. Ottoman in outdoor fabric by Jean Paul Gaultier Constructivisme. Whether in a conventional composition or an “oversized” version with a lounge chair, this model really calls for relaxation.
The Originel is a new introduction and a showstopping sofa designed by Maurizio Manzoni. It features two versatile versions of the model: straight or composition/l-shaped to accommodate and complement any household configuration. Also featuring a manual adjustable back as an inclusive option for different clients and levels of comfort. Upholstered in a soft, textured luxe fabric that is available in various colours, this green option displayed (above) delivers a jaw dropping aesthetic. Coupled with its streamlined leg design, the sofa pulls off the sleek, contemporary look.
The deceptively simple silhouette of the Aqua Table hides the incredible craftsmanship that is used to achieve designer Fabrice Berrux’ impressive challenge: making a marble base imitate a drop of liquid.
Inspired by the comfort of the Preface and the compact composition of the Symbole, the new Octova Sofa model is a refined version of its predecessors. It offers the compact composition with maximum seating space and exceptional comfort. With a depth of just less than one metre, an integrated mobile wooden tray is added in the composition. Backrests are identical to the ones on the Preface – with stitching work on the lumbar cushion. The contrast upholstery fabric offers unique texture and dimension to the sofa.
Syntone is one of the newest of many designs by Philippe Bouix. This model’s adjustable backs – by gas-piston mechanism – can be folded back and forth to offer support for any height, particularly the tall consumer, together with adjustable depth for extra comfort. Syntone is upholstered in the Giada fabric, which accentuates its luxurious shapes and induces sumptuous sensations for any living or entertaining space.
