Roche Bobois was present at Milan Design Week 2019 in order to present to its audience the novelties in their Nativ collection, designed by Raphael Navot. During the iSaloni 2019 event guests who headed towards Hall 6 C30 were able to have a first glance at a familiar collection that blended geometric mastery and organic forms effectively.
The best way to define this collection, in the words of Roche Bobois themselves is as it being “a strangely familiar collection that proposes a dialogue between geometric mastery and organic forms”. During the Italian showcase two new products were introduced: the Underline series, the new Fly light suspension and lastly the Curiosity modular bookcase.

The first series consisted of a line of seating combining leather and fabric upholstery made in order to emphasize the silhouette of its soft duvet. The second consists of a lighting product that can be best defined as a “luminous unidentified flying object”. However, the main highlight definitely goes to the Curiosity modular bookcase.
Roche Bobois has talked extensively about this particular product. It consists of a surprising construction in oak, inspired by the cabinet of curiosities of the 16th century. This product was from many elements of different shapes and sizes that blend together to create a unique ensemble/piece.

Aside from these three new products Roche Bobois also presented a new collaboration again with Raphael Navot. We’re talking about Oscar Ono Paris: a revolutionary flooring and wall cladding system, with timeless patterns, made of pre-assembled modules of pieces of solid oak.
Roche Bobois and Navot have become regular collaborators, another relevant example being the Primordial bookcase, which was seen by the designer as “an atypical, intriguing, quasi-tribal piece”. Not to mention that Raphael Navot was also responsible for the new architecture of the historic Roche Bobois showroom, which is located at 207 Saint Germain Boulevard.
