La Galerie Roche Bobois
Roche Bobois has just opened the first Galerie Roche Bobois, in the heart of Monaco.
Conceived as an expressive exhibition space, the Galerie, measuring 150m², is designed to showcase a selection of Roche Bobois’ most creative pieces, and is aimed at an audience whose thirst for progressive design pushes the brand forwards.
In a very refined setting, La Galerie Roche Bobois will mainly be putting the spotlight on the exclusive collections by Jean Nouvel, Ora Ito, Christophe Delcourt and Hans Hopfer, alongside other exclusive pieces, the fruit of the brand’s ongoing creative work.
The centrepiece of this first exhibition is Zephyrus, designed by Giacomo Garziano/GG-loop: geometric and surprising, it is a “transforming” piece with unfolding doors, whose name is inspired by a giant butterfly from the Americas. Available exclusively in Saphir blue, just 55 examples will be produced, including the designer’s original prototype.
Gilles Bonan, CEO of Roche Bobois, said: “In associating culture, artistic creation and design, La Galerie Roche Bobois expresses the central values of the company. A true creative laboratory, this space has been conceived as one that is resolutely open: aside from our own creations, artists and other creators will also regularly be invited to display their work.”
La Galerie Roche Bobois concept, the expansion of which is already planned for other internationally influential cities and capitals, reaffirms Roche Bobois’ commitment to innovative projects that bring together design, creation and “Art de Vivre”.
