Mah jongComposition asa - kenzo takada

W. 95 x H. 19 x D. 95 cm

Design Hans Hopfer

An uninhibited and audacious designer, Kenzo Takada, “the most Parisian of Japanese designer”, has created a unique and exceptional collection of fabrics and ceramics for Roche Bobois.
To ‘dress' the Mah Jong modular sofa, Takada took inspiration from ancient kimonos used in the Noh Theatre, re-interpreting their patterns and colours to create fine and sophisticated harmonies symbolising the 3 times of the day: Asa (morning), Hiru (midday), Yoru (evening).

Design

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.
