Roche Bobois, the French worldwide leading brand in design and distribution of high-end furniture has proudly announced the grand opening of its Singapore showroom with a brand-new design concept. The new showroom spans over 5,300 square-feet and features an expansive floor-to-ceiling window to frame the beautiful selection of Roche Bobois’s best collections in a dynamic space; this elegant showroom opening also marks another milestone in the brand's significant expansion in the Asia-Pacific region.
Located at ground level of Boon Siew Building along Bukit Timah Road, the Roche Bobois Singapore Showroom possesses a wide store front to entice passers-by to peek into its luxe interior, which from a distance resembles a jewel box.
The new showroom of Singapore enjoys an incredibly large window that brings visibility and light to the showroom. The focus is indeed to highlight that advantage, and thanks to a mirror illusion, they have created a double exposure that makes the showroom look bigger. Inspiration has been found in the green space in the surroundings. The illusion of an outdoor space within the showroom has been created, giving the impression that indoor and outdoor spaces are a single and same place. The light wood flooring is chosen to go with that peaceful indoor garden ambiance and highlight the gorgeous green wall. While the geometric indoor partition creates an open space, the dark walls disappear to leave the eye attracted by the light, creating depth in the showroom.
Roche Bobois is a ‘story of people’, a ‘family saga’ which is still continuing with descendants of the founders acting as today’scompany directors. It all began with the fateful meeting of two families, the Roches, a family from France with a successful family furniture business since the 1800s, and the Chouchans, immigrants from Russia who in 1950 opened their own furniture showroom in Paris called ‘Au Beau Bois’ (‘beautiful wood’) - a brand name which would later evolve into ‘Bobois’.
Together, they formed a bond with a mission to offer customers high-quality and innovative designs relevant to the time. By theearly 60’s, they had already designed their first collection together. The first Roche Bobois showroom, designed by the visionary architect and designer Pierre Paulin, was opened at the same time on the Boulevard Saint-Germain.
Today, Roche Bobois has more than 265 showrooms in over 55 countries, a true mark of its ambitious, accelerated programme of international growth. After 17 new stores opened in 2017, this growth has continued in 2018 in vibrant cities such as HanoÃ¯, Washington, Tokyo and San Diego among others.
With a growing presence all over the world, Roche Bobois embodies the full diversity of French design. Thanks to its long-established network of European manufacturers and fruitful relationships with talented designers (such as Marcel Wanders, Kenzo Takada, Ora Ito among others) and also with prestigious fashion houses (e.g. Jean Paul Gaultier, Missoni Home), the brand has risen to the challenge of achieving an international presence by offering every client a personalised approach to home design and decor.
