When talking about what Paris has to offer in the design field, it is impossible not to mention Roche Bobois. To celebrate its success, the firm teamed up with another famous name: Maison Christian Lacroix.
This first collaboration fuses the worlds of fashion and interior design in a collection developed in a very much awaited partnership. The collection was designed by Sacha Walckhoff, creative director of Maison Christian Lacroix. The designer used beautiful materials, such as lacquered wood, or the glittering brass.
In an approach to the fashion world, dining room chairs pay tribute to mannequins, featuring backs shaped like hourglasses.
The products have different artistic prints that remind us of traditional styles. One example is a cabinet with two push-to-open doors decorated with a landscape inspired by Arles in southern France finished with brass covered legs.
Inspired by the game “Mah Jong”, the Parcours contemporary sofa is unique and a bit Japanese in its design. It is fully modular and dressed in different fabrics.
The is upholstered in a selection of luscious, colourful textiles, adorned with a contrasting central band in fabrics fashioned by Missoni Home, Christian Lacroix or Amlapura. The modular elements offer numerous compositions according to taste and available space.
For this collection, Mr. Walckhoff was given carte blanche by Roche Bobois. The resulting series of 20 exclusive pieces pay homage to decades past, combining and remixing eras in design to make something new. Christian Lacroix translates its signature over-the-top aesthetic into more accessible interior pieces, ranging from accessories to larger upholstered and wooden furniture.
