Don’t let its outer balloon-like structure fool you—the Roche Bobois Bubble sofa by Sacha Lakic is immensely comfortable and plush, with its seats cocooning you as you sink into it. The playful structure brings to mind a cloud of bubbles, reflecting the French company’s intention to design a pleasing piece that is soothing to the eye and the body.
The Bubble sofa also has a serious presence and style. Boasting a sculptural-like form, it’s a popular piece amongst designers, celebrities, and even TV shows. A powder blue version can be found in the abode of Blackpink’s Jennie, while actor Robert Downey Jr. has the five-seat sofa in a custom colourway selected for the living room of his Malibu home.
Netflix’s cult French comedy-drama hit Call My Agent! features a neon yellow piece in the office reception area of ASK. In Singapore, boutique design firm Prestige Global Designs has a purple piece in the lobby area of their new showroom.
