Starting from humble beginnings with a small wood processing factory in Montagnieu, Roset soon grew and joined forces with interior architects during the 60's and 70's. Their most notable collaboration was with Michel Ducaroy, creating the iconic 'Togo'. For more than 35 years Roset has stood by its intrinsic values and works with only the most exciting and talented designers. Ligne Roset aims to continue to explore the limitless world of design-forward inspiration by working with designers from a broad spectrum of cultures and backgrounds.
amedeeamédée is a settee and armchair combination, designed around a lumbar support which is quilted and stitched just like the bucket seats of the best italian motor cars. the armchair may be rotating, and there is also a footstool for when it’s time to relax. chic, urban and thus compact, this family of seating acquires undeniable luxury object status when upholstered in the new full grain, pure aniline orga leather, with its slightly smooth, glossy finish.
andyandy seems set to be a great classic, bearing as it does the imprint of pierre paulin. in 1962, reinterpreting florence knoll's settee from 1954, he softened all its contours, reducing the number of buttons to eliminate the severe squares of quilting and made the metal structure underlining the edges of its base disappear, retaining only the four legs : in short, he designed a new domestic settee, both sensual and refined.
backpack 2backpack derives its distinctive personality from the slim, elegant structure/base which is the perfect foil for the perfectly-designed silhouette of its welcomingly thick and ergonomically-curved seat/back cushion. at the top of the back, the cushion rolls over on itself and is held in place by a strap on its back (red or black) which is evocative of the kind of backpack used by the explorers of yesteryear.
moving the backpack seating really is child’s play: one is surprised by the lightness.
berlin loftberlin loft is a bed-settee which designers thomas müller and jörg wulff define as ‘trendy’ and ‘casual’. it is perfect for a modern interior and will be, by turns, the place to sit, sleep, rest and do nothing. this settee resembles the city in which it was born in the imagination of the designers: berlin. a simple, unabashed, practical and modern city. “the settee becomes the centre of our space, the platform for our lives, a cocoon of sweetness in such a bustling city.''
bonnieligne roset was able to work on the reissue of the bonnie seating using a real collector’s item, one of only a few very rare examples in existence (modèles 500 and 500/2 – design 1975). from the outset, the bonnie seating was striking in terms of its comfort, both visual and real, hugging the lines of the human body fiercely. the bonnie seating is at once extremely comfortable and also clever, without being too clever.
clamclam is a bed-settee with an easy-to operate system which enables it to offer just as much comfort as a settee as it does as a bed. its meticulous finish and apparent lightness enable it to be viewed from all sides and to offer a soothing cocoon in settee position and a generous sleep area when used as a bed. when located in the centre of a room, it becomes an island of relaxation for reading or resting.
confluencesconfluences may be considered to be a trailblazer in terms of the new trend for 'counterforms' as characterised by the interwoven yin-yang or puzzle-type effect. it will be just as pleasing to lovers of radical design, pioneers searching for a settee which is totally different from any other, as it will to all those who are seduced first and foremost by the freedom of posture and unheard-of conviviality offered by its colourful, unbridled compositions.
cossethe inspiration for the cosse settee is comfort. soft, welcoming contours, a soft, delicate, all-enveloping form which, sustained by a fine natural wood structure, floats above the ground. the remarkable comfort of the seat, achieved thanks to its elastic-webbed suspension, contributes to this feeling of comfort and lightness.
cover 1the name cover is just as evocative of the concept as it is of the function. its comfort and sensuality mask brazen simplicity of use : the cover of cover can be removed in a matter of seconds, making maintenance almost a pleasure. the cover is draped over the structure like a throw, seeming to hover over it.
daybeda revolutionary piece on the french market of the early fifties, the minimalist elegance of the daybed banquette has every chance of achieving even greater success today, given that views on such economy of form have been developed over decades. designed as a small settee with an integral low table, it becomes a large banquette seating 3-4 persons (or even an occasional bed for one) when one positions the two back cushions on the low table as an extension to the seat cushion.
do not disturbdo not disturb's lines are sober and elegant. the continuous line of its structure offers broad armrests at just the right height for resting the arms. aesthetics and comfort unite to make one forget that this settee, with its successful proportions, conceals within itself an ultra-efficient manually or electrically-operated mechanism for excellent everyday comfort.
elizabethas with the majority of nathan yong's designs, elizabeth is both fluid in design and makes the best possible use of natural materials. the impressive structure of the armchair and settee is in black-stained solid ash, creating a welcoming nest in which several cushions in carefully-blended colours and/or covering materials create an intimate and welcome space.
