10 designers & artists reimagine an icon of Parisian design

Roche Bobois’ classic 1971 Mah Jong sofa gets a modern treatment that ranges from Filipino traditional weaving to a nostalgic trip on a jeepney.

What do you with a piece of design that has withstood the whims of trends for almost five decades? You reinvent it with 10 creative collaborators, of course!

One of the 1970s’ most enduring designs, the Mah Jong sofa is so adaptable it can be a low sofa or a high sofa with the addition of another layer of seat, or it can even be a daybed.

Roche Bobois over the years has collaborated with fashion houses such as Missoni Home, Jean Paul Gaultier and Kenzo Takada to dress it up with their signature fabrics for limited editions.
