Roche Bobois has al­ways worked with the most tal­ented de­sign­ers avail­able. For ex­am­ple, artist Hans Hopfer de­signed so­fas that be­came the in­dis­putable sig­na­ture of Roche Bobois col­lec­tions.

In 1971, he cre­ated the Mah Jong sofa, based on to­tal free­dom of func­tion and form. From a start­ing point of three ba­sic el­e­ments that can be set at an­gles or over­laid, the Mah Jong al­lows lim­it­less op­tions of com­po­si­tion. It can be arm­chair, sofa, lounge chair or bed; a space in which to rest, to play or to lounge. It en­cour­ages ex­per­i­men­ta­tion and breaks the rules of for­mal liv­ing, re­flect­ing the non­con­formist era in which it was born.

The Roche Bobois Mah Jong sofa is hand­made in a ded­i­cated work­shop in Italy us­ing pro­cesses and tech­niques sim­i­lar to those of the Haute Cou­ture fash­ion in­dus­try. Each com­po­nent is in­di­vid­u­ally hand-stitched us­ing a method sim­i­lar to that of mattress-mak­ing, and the ut­most at­ten­tion is paid to de­tail­ing. By virtue of the ex­clu­sive fab­rics used to up­hol­ster it and the unique na­ture of each com­po­si­tion, ev­ery Mah Jong com­po­si­tion be­comes a one-of-a-kind creation.

Over the years, Roche Bobois has called upon Kenzo Mai­son, Mis­soni Home and Jean Paul Gaultier to dress spe­cial edi­tions of the Mah Jong. Each of these artis­tic col­lab­o­ra­tors has man­aged to ex­press a new se­duc­tive and sur­pris­ing facet of the Mah Jong with­out chang­ing the core de­sign.

Cre­ativ­ity, a mix­ture of in­flu­ences and an au­da­cious use of colour have for a long been the trade­marks of Kenzo Mai­son. Com­bin­ing eth­nic prints with the dis­tinc­tive iconic flo­ral mo­tifs of the brand, the fab­rics cre­ated to dress the Mah Jong in the last decade gave light to cre­ations that are both po­etic and un­ex­pected. Ital­ian fash­ion house Mis­soni also brought in its iconic zigzag stripes and re­fined flo­ral fab­rics that ex­ude a sense of joy.

French cou­turier Jean Paul Gaultier has also placed his witty and won­der­fully creative stamp on the Mah Jong, dress­ing the de­sign in both his dis­tinc­tive striped sailor style cos­tume and in an up­hol­stery ver­sion in­spired by the dis­tinc­tive mo­tifs of his Haute Cou­ture fash­ion col­lec­tions such as tat­toos and other po­etic graph­ics. His cre­ativ­ity, el­e­gance and so­phis­ti­ca­tion break the rules of con­ven­tion, in much the same way that Hopfer did.
