Cedric Ragots’ functional designs have a strong visual identity as this designers practice moves from cosmetics to electronics and from tableware to furniture. His pieces transcend fluid movement and structure. His practice shows no material more prominent than another but his pieces each reflect a symbiotic relationship between material and movement. His consideration for space and how his designs will sit within a space is clearly relevant as each piece is intended to consume and mould the area. Working with Ceramic Enamels’ this artist creates fluid structures with seamless ease.

The craft behind each product reflects the designers understanding of their practice and the initial pricing. The craftsmanship gone into each piece goes beyond the mass-produced aesthetic of retail distributors putting Roche Bobois’ designs on a more personal level in a league of their own.
