Roche Bobois Auc­tions Artist-de­signed Cush­ions

Canadian Art - - Legacy -

You know Roche Bobois’s sig­na­ture piece: luxe cush­ions that can be com­bined to cre­ate mod­u­lar seat­ing ar­range­ments. But, at this year’s Art Toronto, Roche Bobois is launch­ing a spe­cial Canada 150 project that will give their iconic Mah Jong cush­ion a twist. Six lead­ing Cana­dian artists will each de­sign a cush­ion in their sig­na­ture style, and Roche Bobois will ex­hibit the re­sult­ing cre­ations be­fore Art Toronto. Af­ter be­ing a Fea­ture Project at the fair, Roche Bobois will auc­tion the pieces in sup­port of Cana­dian Art. They could fit to­gether to form a fun com­po­si­tion, but given the artists who are con­tribut­ing to the project, they could hap­pily stand alone. Past RBC Cana­dian Paint­ing Com­pe­ti­tion win­ner Pa­trick Cruz will be work­ing on one, as will vet­eran Cal­gary painter Ron Mop­pett, Kin­ngait-based artist Ningiukulu Teevee and Mon­treal mul­ti­me­dia artist Karen Kraven.
