Roche Bobois Auctions Artist-designed Cushions
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.
