Ligne Roset is proud to announce that their Ploum sofa, designed by Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec has won the title ‘Red Dot: Best of the Best 2011’ against stiff competition from the world of designer furniture. There were 4,433 product submissions from 60 countries from which the jury selected 650 winners, 50 of which were given the ‘best of the best’ distinction. This is the fifth ‘Red Dot: Best of the Best’ award that Ligne Roset has received since 2005, which is an amazing feat! The awards ceremony will take place in the Theatre Aalto in Essen, Germany on July 4th, 2011.
Ploum was one of the most exciting designer sofas to come out of IMM Cologne 2011. A spongy, rounded sofa that the Bouroullec brothers describe as being like ‘a ripe, voluptuous piece of fruit’, Ploum comes in a variety of colors, most notably in vibrant red, and is available as a loveseat or sofa. They put a lot of research into its creation, from the stretchy covering fabric and flexible foam material to its ample dimensions,making Ploum remarkable in terms of both style and comfort.
Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec, designers of this award-winning sofa, collaborate with Ligne Roset and other manufacturers, while also working on architectural projects. They were discovered in 1997 with their ‘Dis-integrated Kitchen’ and have been working together on projects for leading and respected brands for over 10 years.
