MONTGOLFIÈRE | 4 seater sofa
4 seater fabric sofa
Marcel Wanders designed the Globe trotter collection for Roche Bobois.
This unique and eclectic collection is inspired by the legendary adventurers and explorers who traveled the world to discover new cultures and rare objects.
The collection expresses openness, freedom and inspiration, showcasing Marcel Wanders’ signature design style.
A large illustrated fresco portrays a whimsical wonderland, inviting one to take a walk among all the familiar characters from our beloved childhood stories. The fresco connects the pieces and different worlds to create a cohesive story throughout the entire collection. Cleverly combining historical references and imaginary journeys, Marcel Wanders’ Globe trotter is a romantic and poetic “ promenade collection ”.
