07/08/2019 - 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, the 2019 Fall-Winter 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.
Waves of elegance
Whether naturally wavy or geometrically controlled, curves lend themselves beautifully to one’s imagination. Inspired by the Art Deco period (Merlin mirror, Paquebot vases) or a desire to explore new formal territories, such as the Serpentine table or the Speed Up bar unit, curves are eternal.
In love with triangles? The innate balance of its geometry captivates and brings to life hypnotizing motifs (Blue Losanges rug, Totem vases). The base of the Origami table is composed of 8 superimposed triangles. As for the Girasol table, Patrick de Glo de Besses designed it as a farandole of geometries: the 16 facets of its pyramidal skirt-like base result from the superposition of 2 square volumes, the 8 polygons of its marquetry top wrap around an octagon, and the belt is composed of 32 triangles.
Smoothing out the edges
For Roche Bobois, comfort is about more than a physical experience, aesthetic also comes into play. Physical comfort is always key, with sofas designed for the well-being of those who curl up and get cosy (Temps Calme and Homepage sofas). However it is brought to another level by visual comfort when corners are rounded out to soften an interior (Roller sideboard, Silo cocktail table).
Intralatina wall unit
When it comes to optimising the layout of an interior, nothing compares to a right angle. Rational and reassuring, this season it transforms into motifs (Mer de Glace rug) or timelessly chic pieces of furniture (Intralatina wall unit, Contre-Jour bed or Charleston lamp).
In the way of Jean Cocteau
This season, Roche Bobois 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.
