Highlights From Salone del Mobile 2022 Included Standouts From Roche Bobois

Nicolas Roche, collections director of the iconic Parisian furniture brand that bears his name, can be forgiven, in the announcement of the company’s newest showroom and latest collection, for calling Milan “the Italian capital.” (It’s Rome.) But that speaks to the primacy of Milan as an epicenter of global design—and he has every reason to be jazzed about Roche Bobois’s new location on Milan’s via Felice Cavallotti after a brutal 2020 and a strong recovery in 2021. There’s something celebratory, almost giddy, about the new pieces—some of them are abstract but most are rigorously geometric. None of them are somber. 

“While building on its ongoing collaborations—as with Eugeni Quitllet and his impressive desk in the Pulp collection, awash in lacquered white—Roche Bobois continues to seek out budding talent and keeps a close eye on the latest generations,” Roche says. “This continuous prospecting reflects our determination to anticipate future expressions. New collaborations include American designer Sean Connors and the poetic, articulated Oiseau floor lamp, Simone Cagnazzo and his tilting armchair, Florence Bourel and her marble Strate lamp made from recycled offcuts, and Catalan designer Pepe Llaudet with his Sail lamps.”

Of course, Roche Bobois showrooms are also found closer to home—in Miami, Aventura, Coral Gables and Palm Beach. Here’s a sampling of the pieces that debuted in Milan this year.

BIOGRAPHY

Drew Limsky joined Lifestyle Media Group in August 2020 as Editor-in-Chief of South Florida Business & Wealth. His first issue of SFBW, October 2020, heralded a reimagined structure, with new content categories and a slew of fresh visual themes. “As sort of a cross between Forbes and Robb Report, with a dash of GQ and Vogue,” Limsky says, “SFBW reflects South Florida’s increasingly sophisticated and dynamic business and cultural landscape.”

Limsky, an avid traveler, swimmer and film buff who holds a law degree and Ph.D. from New York University, likes to say, “I’m a doctor, but I can’t operate—except on your brand.” He wrote his dissertation on the nonfiction work of Joan Didion. Prior to that, Limsky received his B.A. in English, summa cum laude, from Emory University and earned his M.A. in literature at American University in connection with a Masters Scholar Award fellowship.

Limsky came to SFBW at the apex of a storied career in journalism and publishing that includes six previous lead editorial roles, including for some of the world’s best-known brands. He served as global editor-in-chief of Lexus magazine, founding editor-in-chief of custom lifestyle magazines for Cadillac and Holland America Line, and was the founding editor-in-chief of Modern Luxury Interiors South Florida. He also was the executive editor for B2B magazines for Acura and Honda Financial Services, and he served as travel editor for Conde Nast. Magazines under Limsky’s editorship have garnered more than 75 industry awards.

He has also written for many of the country’s top newspapers and magazines, including The New York Times, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, Miami Herald, Boston Globe, USA Today, Worth, Robb Report, Afar, Time Out New York, National Geographic Traveler, Men’s Journal, Ritz-Carlton, Elite Traveler, Florida Design, Metropolis and Architectural Digest Mexico. His other clients have included Four Seasons, Acqualina Resort & Residences, Yahoo!, American Airlines, Wynn, Douglas Elliman and Corcoran. As an adjunct assistant professor, Limsky has taught journalism, film and creative writing at the City University of New York, Pace University, American University and other colleges.
