Collection Globe Trotter by Marcel Wanders

Collection Globe Trotter by Marcel Wanders

"This collection is a tribute to the adventurers that we all dreamed of being. Travelling can be a life-changing experience, and we wanted each piece to seem like it was a treasure brought back from a far-away country." Marcel Wanders

Roche Bobois has chosen a unique location, the Cirque d'Hiver, for the first Paris presentation of the Globe Trotter collection.

This spectacular and magical location is the perfect setting for this collection, which was designed by Dutch designer Marcel Wanders for Roche Bobois.

Both unique and eclectic, the Globe Trotter collection is inspired by the legendary adventurers, explorers, and collectors who passionately discovered new cultures during their expeditions. It showcases the designer's signature look of freedom and inspiration.

Marcel Wanders has skillfully mixed historical references with ideas of imaginary journeys to create this "promenade collection" for Roche Bobois. The decor of the Cirque Napoléon perfectly compliments this romantic and poetic Paris presentation.

Marcel Wanders is one of the most talented designers of his generation. His works are exhibited in the most prestigious museums of the world, including the MoMA in New York and San Francisco, the V&A Museum in London and the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam."
