Joana Vasconcelos - Bombom

In celebration of Roche Bobois’ sixtieth anniversary, Roche Bobois asked renowned Portuguese artist, Joana Vasconcelos  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. Joana Vasconcelos and Nicolas Roche present to us this playful, alluring and optimistic collection.
