Jean-Philippe Nuel designs graffiti inspired rug collection

French designer and interior architect Jean-Philippe Nuel has created a series of rugs to be stocked by contemporary furniture brand Roche Bobois.

The three designs honor the street art which took over the historic art-deco swimming pool in Paris Molitor when it closed its doors in 1989.

A new five-star hotel has now been established on site and the graffiti theme preserved.

Made from polyamide fabric and featuring up to 24 colors, the rug designs are named ‘Beijing', ‘Miami' and ‘Chennai'.

Famous for his work on some of the world's top luxury hotels, Nuel has an ongoing furniture design collaboration with contemporary brand Ligne Roset.

Roche Bobois was founded in 1950 and has gone on to specialize in luxury furniture design with a strikingly modern edge. The brand has worked with designers such as Ora ito and Christophe Delcourt.
