A great way to make the most of space by keeping versatile with this Roche Bobois Mah Jong seating system.
Originally designed in the 1971 by Hans Hopfer the ‘Mah Jong’ seating system is as iconic today as it was then. Here is what Roche Bobois has to say about this design and the designer: Painter, sculptor, designer… Hans Hopfer designed sofas that are, for many, the indisputable “signature” of Roche Bobois’ collections. In the 1970s, Hopfer’s innovative and informal approach to comfort had a profound influence on the way people furnished and arranged their living space. In 1971, he created the Mah Jong, a sofa based on the total freedom of function and form. Starting with three basic elements that can be combined or stacked, the Mah Jong allows limitless options of composition. It can be an 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. Avant-garde when first created, iconic today, and “dressed” by Missoni Home and Jean Paul Gaultier, this “free form” modular seating is the reference point for fully modular and creative design. Here is a breakdown of all pieces included in this listing: 1 Domino area rug 2 Straight backs 1 Corner back (rare option) 1 Adjustable back (rare option!) 10 Seat cushions 3 Pillows 1 Half Pillow This humungous Mah Jong sectional sofa system by Hans Hopfer for Missoni and Roche Bobois would work great in a Post-Modern, Mid-Century Modern, Space Age Mod, Scandanavian Modern or Danish Modern home or penthouse apartment but could also look fantastic in a Contemporary or Zen / Minimalism room. Also consider mixing it up in a Traditional, Transitional, Hollywood Regency, Classical or Art Deco room with a splash of juxtaposition. Would also be an apt choice in a commercial project such as a hotel lobby lounge or members club, creative design studio or high-rise executive office.
