Since 2005, Fred Rieffel has been creating elegant and innovative designs for Roche Bobois, such as the Box and Circus cocktail tables or the Tandem end table. Rieffel lives in Strasbourg where he is a professor at the School of Decorative Arts. His objective is to create designs that rouse emotions via their economy and to inspire a new approach to the idea of function.
From industrial design to interiors, the work of Cédric Ragot pushes the boundaries of the contemporary arts and has been hailed as some of the most innovative work to be created by his generation. Always on the move yet always available, with a lust for knowledge and an insatiable curiosity, strong-willed, talented and endearing, this young designer refused to be pigeon-holed. His creativity flowed from one project to the next, creating synergies between them. From the beginning of his collaboration with Roche Bobois in 2005 to his sad parting in 2015, Cédric brought boundless creativity, a sense of innovation and great expertise to the projects that we worked on, often combining biomorphic forms of inspiration and technologically advanced materials. His ability to blend creative imagination with innovative technical solutions and to adapt to situations rather than to ever give up, led to the creation of furniture and accessory designs that will bear the imprint of his talent long into the future.
