Design Hans Hopfer

Hans Hopfer designed the Mah Jong in 1971, with an innovative and uncomplicated approach to comfort which had a profound impact on interior design. Whether as a corner sofa, straight sofa, armchair, bench seat or extra bed, the Mah Jong was conceived to be able to freely adapt in function and form. Each cushion is made by hand in a dedicated workshop, using the same methods as an Haute Couture workshop. ...

Hans Hopfer

In the 1970s Hans Hopfer created the Mah Jong lounge sofa, Roche Bobois’s most recognised and iconic design. The freedom of form that this fully modular low seating system allows broke the design mould and encouraged a completely new way of organising living spaces. Upholstered in simple plain fabrics at the beginning, today it is ‘dressed’ by some of the world’s finest couturiers.
