Furniture is fairly difficult to assess without context. Sure, things look good in display sets at the store but will they work with your interior design strategy at home? With this in mind, Roche Bobois has created a variety of creative layouts to showcase their furniture collections.
“Mah Jong,” pictured top, is one of their most unique offerings.
“Painter, sculptor, designer… Hans Hopfer designed sofas that are, for many, the indisputable ‘signature’ of Roche Bobois’ collections. In the 1970s, Hopfer’s innovative and informal approach to comfort had a profound infl uence on the way people furnished and arranged their living space. In 1971, he created the Mah Jong, a sofa based on the total freedom of function and form. Starting with three basic elements that can be combined or stacked, the Mah Jong allows limitless options of composition.”
“It can be an armchair, sofa, lounge chair or bed; a space in which to rest, to play or to lounge. It encourages experimentation and breaks the rules of formal living, reflecting the nonconformist era in which it was born.”
In some of their example settings the furniture is largely designed to blend with existing design elements and color schemes. Contemporary yet classic, with clean lines and neutral upholstery, these pieces meld beautifully into all sorts of spaces.
In other cases the new furniture is intended to stand out brightly from the current design scheme and make a bold set of statements. This wildly artistic collection is the “BOM BOM,” with a fun and playful spirit.
Whether you’re into bright, feminine colors or darker and more masculine creations, Roche Bobois has an elegant solution, like the modular INTERMEDE and BLOGGER sofas with their bulbous shapes and low profiles, or the sleek INTINERAIRE or GAMBIT styles.
Whether or not you are actually looking for new living room furniture, these designers are adept at showing the variety of possible strategies one can employ in redecorating an interior living space.
