Internationally renowned French architect Jean NOUVEL has earned some of the most prestigious awards, including the Pritzker Prize in 2008. He does not identify himself as a designer, but as “an architect who also designs.” His collection was inspired by the essence of form. He designed a lacquered table and buffet-column for Roche Bobois using circles as a symbol of purity. These creations are mystifying yet obvious, with forms that sculpt and reflect their surroundings. This exceptional collaboration exemplifies the close connection between architecture and interior design.
