In celebration of the brand’s sixtieth anniversary, Roche Bobois has decided to continue the dialogue with Joana Vasconcelos by asking her to design a line of seating and decorative accessories as the flagship collection of the year.
Maintaining the point of view of an artist rather than a designer, she took on the challenge of designing pieces intended to interact with a wider audience. By transposing her themes and questioning to everyday objects, she offers her vision of the world adapted to the organisation of living spaces.
The end result is a series of multifunctional pieces that are playful, alluring and optimistic.
A series of sofas with fluid, organic and generous shapes that can be composed and combined according to ones’ wishes. The colors reflect Joana Vasconcelos’ optimism and creativity: direct, fresh, tart and deep shades are united yet outlined by the black stripes. The backs are all mobile and independent, allowing free form for each sofa. These pieces give full freedom to design your own comfort ... either sitting or lying down.
Four rug designs complete the collection. They include original drawings by Joana Vasconcelos, reproduced in flamboyant hues embodying vertain codes of the artist’s works : original, organic and colourful forms.
The collection of cushions includes patterns from the artist’s original designs, printed and embroidered, with white or black backgrounds. It is available in three sizes, for a total of six different designs. This collection reflects the fantasy and chromatic exuberance emblematic to Joana Vasconcelos’ work.
