Incorporating eco-designed interiors elements into home environments is the new primary consideration for stylists in 2022. However, it’s tricky – very few quality pieces on the market are certified to be eco-designed as per proper assessment tools and independent bodies.
French furniture brand Roche Bobois is demonstrating an awareness of this new priority for consumers by developing new products, making eco-consciousness priority every time. The brand is also working to rethink existing models to make them more virtuous. More than 150 of them have already been evaluated.
One of these, is the Legend bookcase, designed by Christophe Delcourt.
With Legend, Christophe Delcourt created a piece that is both inspired by and respectful of nature. Made entirely of solid wood, with an eco-conceived ethos, each Legend piece is unique and preserves all the natural characteristics of the tree from which it is made.

Eco8 is the brand’s answer to a new approach of creation and quality in the face of human impact upon the environment. Legend has been positively evaluated according Eco8, against eight criteria corresponding to each stage of its life cycle. For more information on Eco8, visit the Roche Bobois website.
