Gaultier For Roche Bobois

French designer John Paul Gaultier, creator of that cone bra, lover of stripes and maker of some of the most provocative fragrances (and ads) on the market, has teamed up with Paris-based furniture maker Roche Bobois to celebrate its 50th anniversary. The range launched in the US today.

According to WWD.com: "Gaultier reinterpreted the low Mah Jong modular sofa with his signature scribble, sailor-stripe and tattoo patterns, and created a paravent platform bed, a leather storage unit with drawers that also function as suitcases, a striped rug with red pom-poms on the corners and embroidered pillows and wool throws, among other elements."

The designer said of the hook-up: "My inspiration for this collection was mobility, freedom and travel. Almost all the pieces in this collection have wheels, because I wanted people to be able to move each item from one room to another."
