As promised, here’s another one of my favorite Dining By Design Installations from this year’s DIFFA event, as David Scott Interiors and renowned international luxury furniture brand Roche Bobois invite guests to an elemental dining experience aboard a luxury liner cruising the Atlantic.
Thoughtfully crafted for modern entertaining, an ambient seating area splashed with hues of ocean blue and warm sunshine yellow transitions to a dining area evoking natural light reflecting onto wave-like water formations.
A window seat provides the perfect perch to overlook a natural wonder in the water with Zaria Forman (@zarialynn)’s video artwork titled Ode to an Iceberg, fearing video filmed by Forman in Whale Bay, Antartica (courtesy of Winston Wächter Fine Art). While guests cruise along, similarly to artists’ hands, the wind and water sculpt the icebergs into unimaginable melting shapes.
The unique installation features Roche Bobois’ iconic pieces such as the Bubble armchairs, Edito lounge chair, Ava Bridge chairs, Voiles Dining Table and Nonette floor lamps. Architectural lighting is provided by Orsman Design and tabletop arrangements are provided courtesy of Nikko Ceramics and Les Ateliers Courbet with floral arrangements by Mark Rose Events.
“Our design was driven by the sculptural quality of the pieces selected from the Roche Bobois collections,” says designer, David Scott. “The visual strength of the brilliant yellow Bubble chair and the dramatic shape and finish of the Voiles dining table is a striking pairing. Song Wen Zhong’s Ava Bridge clear dining chair is the perfect nod to Zaria Forman’s video piece . They look like they could melt away right in front of your eyes!”
“Roche Bobois is proud to support DIFFA in its continuous efforts to fight the misconceptions and judgements against HIV/AIDS,” says Jennifer Barre, National Marketing Director for Roche Bobois. “We couldn’t be happier to have partnered with the amazing team of David Scott Interiors. They really brought a storytelling dimension to the space.”
