Roche Bobois Has Your Patio Covered with a New Outdoor Collection

The Mah Jong outdoor modular sofa by Hans Hopfer for Roche Bobois is perfect poolside with other outdoor accessories like the Zag Pedestal table, price upon request.

When painter-sculptor-designer Hans Hopfer designed the Mah Jong modular sofa for Roche Bobois in 1971, it was revolutionary. The first-of-its-kind furniture piece allowed for total freedom of function and form, but its versatility stopped at the front door. This season, after 48 years, the Mah Jong gets some fresh air. Ready to weather the elements, the debut outdoor edition of the iconic sectional sits on a metal base lacquered with anticorrosion coating, and its plush cushions are upholstered in all-weather outdoor fabrics from MissoniHome. Furthering the endless modular combinations that made the original such a success, the new outdoor version features movable tray tables for holding glasses, towels or sunscreen. Sometimes, it’s nice to get out of the house!
