Spring News & Events 2019
The Philadelphia Design District is a collective community representing creativity and design in a vibrant and changing dynamic neighborhood of Old City.
Roche Bobois Philly is happy to announce its participation in «Private School 101», a 30- day installation of all things vogue. «Private School» is an experimental showcase featuring over 40 of Philadelphia’s most up-and-coming artists, chefs, makers, musicians, and brands.
The installation will be open to the public daily, located in the heart of Philly’s Loft district.
Also, this season Raphael Navot, renowned architect and interior designer from the Design Academy Eindhoven, has imagined Nativ Collection for Roche Bobois: these pieces radiate nature, culture, spontaneity and the mastery of form. With Nativ, Navot presents a dialog between geometric and organic shapes; while offering a collection which feels surprisingly familiar.
We are pleased to present this new collection, as well as our Spring – Summer 2019 creations. We invite you to discover these new collections in-store and on our website.
