The Milan Furniture fair is an unmissable design event and a great opportunity for Roche Bobois, which currently generates 58% of its turnover outside France, to meet its partners who come from all over the world. At the fair, the brand introduced a selection of pieces from its upcoming autumn-winter 2016 collection.

This year it also celebrates the Mah Jong sofa, which was designed in 1971 by Hans Hopfer and has since become the brand’s most iconic model. Roche Bobois recently released, ‘The Swimming Pool,’ a TV/cinema commercial which centres around the Mah Jong sofa and conveys Roche Bobois’ particular brand of French luxury: fresh, innovative and full of joie de vivre.
