Since its inception, Roche Bobois has never stopped promoting both local and international art, in fact, promoting artists forms part of the Roche Bobois mindset.
The showroom creates a unique atmosphere, allowing customers to imagine a piece in their own homes. Artworks are chosen to match with the Roche Bobois collections.
Supporting local artists by helping them showcase their work to a broader audience is integral to Roche Bobois, and the brand encourages not only the purchase of work from the showroom itself, but also the relationship between the artist and the customer.
Roche Bobois also likes to work with artists to promote charities. Inexbrussels is an exhibition of seven street artists’ work that took place in the Brussels Roche Bobois showroom in June 2016.
The work was auctioned with all the profits going to the Mimi Ullens Foundation, which ensures companionship and promotes the well-being of people with cancer.
Having been open for 18 months, Roche Bobois in Cape Town has launched their first photographic exhibition in partnership with The Boutique Gallery in Franschhoek. From 23 February to 13 March 2017, the work of photographer Krisjan Rossouw will be showcased.
”The work of Krisjan Rossouw can easily be called phenomenal,” says William Vaesen, owner of The Boutique Gallery. “Striking images, beautiful models and tropical settings full of colour and African sensuality. With his astonishing eye for detail each photographic work becomes a unique piece of art. Krisjan is already gaining much acclaim from galleries and collectors locally and worldwide.”
Roche Bobois is able to organise private viewings for those wanting a more intimate encounter with the artist. Each work will be accessible on request.
Roche Bobois is located at 10 Kloof Street, Cape Town. Visit facebook.com/RocheBoboisSouthAfrica for more information.
