Before its global launch in September 2018, the Globe Trotter collection, designed by Marcel Wanders for Roche Bobois, was presented in preview at the International Milan Furniture Fair 2018.
Both a unique and eclectic collection, Globe Trotter is inspired by legendary inventors and adventurers, collectors of rare objects impassioned by nature and the cosmopolitan cultures discovered on the course of their journeys. The freedom and inspiration which marks the work of its creator is found there.
Marcel Wanders : “This collection was conceived as a celebration of the exploration many of us dream to do. Travel is such a transformative experience, and we wanted to capture the feeling of collecting worldly treasures with each piece.”
Cleverly combining historical references and imaginary journeys, Globe Trotter is a "promenade collection" that is both romantic and poetic.
