It is a sofa that evokes softness, comfort and lightness. This design, inspired by a swollen cloud, is entirely handmade by Roche Bobois designer Sacha Lakic.
He has the particularity of combining beauty, sensuality and functionality in his creations. The manufacturing of the sofa Bubble required him to develop with an innovative textile, Techno 3D or 4D. It is a unique fabric for its tenacity and extensibility, it allowed the designer to give these rounded shapes and tightly sits on the sofa. It is composed of a robust jersey on which a “soft touch” honeycomb wool of contrasting colours is applied. The seat and the back are made of bi-density foam based on a frame of solid fir. For the cushion, the creator has used HR elastic straps for the seat and backrest upholstery, polyurethane foam and varnished wood for the base.
The Bubble is an innovative design. “The comfort, practicality and cheerfulness of the design make the piece of furniture unique, original and convivial. It is the image of the Roche Bobois brand and is very appreciated in a family shelter” says the designer. Sacha Lakic is one of the few designers whose creativity is protean, passing with a rare facility from product to architecture, from photography to fashion. He takes advantage of industrial constraints to give life to ever more modern projects, bold and hi-tech, all with an organic and dynamic style.
The Bubble sofa has been awarded the Gold Award in the 2015 Design Awards product category.
Rewarded by an international jury of renowned design professionals, the Bubble represents the perfect balance between art and industry, function and emotion. Since 2016, the sofa was also developed in a 4D siding. It is available in different colours, in yellow, grey, blue, pink, two-tone, tricolour, and two dimensions, with a matching pouffe in different sizes.
The Bubble has undergone many changes since its inception. From 3D to 4D technology for a fun, innovative and original optical effect. Different sizes and different colours, the Bubble chair has also been adapted as a swivel seat, smaller to suit small spaces. The innovation of the Bubble for 2017 is on the printed fabrics tricolour degrades for the various pads of the cloud. The range now hosts a new armchair founded on the same materials, but with a different design: l’édito.
The optical effects also help to make furniture pieces unique and original. Not only used in homes, the Bubble appears also all around the world for fashion shows!
