Doda is an interpretation of the classic bergère in more contemporary style. A welcoming armchair, which stands out for its measured proportions between thicknesses and the meetings of straight and curved lines. Sit back, stretch out and relax.

Les Forets, by Pascal Mourgue, for Ligne Roset
Simple, essential shapes, dampened by rich and intense hues. The design concept originates from a suggestive and moving panoramic, almost aerial, view that pays tribute to the designer’s homeland of Mancha, an area of Spain steeped in contrasts that extends over the fields as far as the eye can see. The lamp is composed of methacrylate and aluminium sheets that diffuse the light creating a range of lighting effects on the wall.
