This blog post is dedicated to the iconic modular sofa Mah Jong, designed by Hans Hopfer in 1970s. It became the most recognizable piece of Roche Bobois brand. Sofa is completely modular and has a low seat system. Years later, such designers as Missoni, Jean Paul Gaultier, “dressed” the sofa, which began with simple fabric in 1971. In this blog we will show you Missoni collection of Mah Jong.
The Mah Jong was created to provide freedom of form and function. By encouraging people to arrange the elements to what suits them best, the Mah Jong can change the landscape of a living room, offering a whole new approach to the way we view and arrange the spaces in which we live.
The composition choices are limitless, giving one the opportunity to completely reorganise one’s living space. Thereby redefining the original meaning of the term “sofa”.
The 3 basic elements of the Mah Jong can be combined, aligned with each other and grouped as one wishes. Seat cushion, straight back or corner, one can play with shape and the height to create the desired composition: corner sofa, straight sofa, armless sofa or day bed.
