Ligne Roset is proud to announce its sponsorship of the Wanted Design NYC, a fresh and exciting addition to Design Week, held in New York City. This creative platform for international designers, architects, and manufacturers to discuss and share exciting, inspiring and innovative ideas will take place from May 13 through May 16.
Ligne Roset will be honored by the presence of Philippe Nigro, who will present some of his pieces introduced earlier this year at IMM and Maison et Objet.
Creations designed by Philippe Nigro include Inseparables and T.U., and some of the new pieces making their debut Stateside will be Passio, Cuts and Stripes. Inseparable is a multifunctional piece which can act as a sofa end table, seat or simply a foot rest. The table can be slotted into the footstool or kept separately. The T.U. table also demonstrates a versatile quality as it has reversible top panels which can be flipped to show different materials and colors or can be altered in terms of width and height to suit the room or occasion. The sofa Passio is the introduction to our new outdoor collection. Its inventive design was conceived for indoor living, but the choice of materials allows it to be enjoyed outdoors. Nigro’s signature themes of intersections and interlocking elements are apparent in the arms and back. His passion for repetition and variation continues with the bookcase Cuts and with the pendant lamp Stripes.
In conjunction with Wanted Design, Ligne Roset’s Soho showroom will decorate its window with Ploum, one of the most exciting pieces to come out of IMM Cologne 2011. Designed by Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec, this will mark the first time Ploum will be seen in North America.
Ligne Roset is also proud to congratulate designer Inga Sempé, who was recently recognized at the 9 th Annual Elle Decoration International Design Awards (EDIDA). She won the Seating Category with her Ruché sofa and was also named Designer of the Year. This innovative sofa gets its name from the technique of gathering or pleating material and has a solid wood structure.
