It’s that time of the year, and Solinfo has once again been feverishly preparing for the Advent period.
We celebrated our 30th birthday this year, and this also gave us the opportunity to review everything that has happened not just to us, but to all designers and artists in the recent period.
The world of design has not come to a halt in 2020 either. The way we worked has changed, and we certainly saw that – at times – things progressed more laboriously and slower. The year has taught us patience and persistence. We needed strength to continue onwards undeterred. We also needed designers to continuously keep creating. In many cases, these people are close personal friends and business partners. We mutually supported and gave strength to one another, and it was always an occasion to celebrate when they came out with a new collection, work of art or an innovative piece. This is why we gathered these up and are now presenting them to you over the course of 24 days, so that others like us, lovers of design, may look ahead to Christmas believing that 2020 was again an extraordinary year.
2020 again saw great and wonderful things created, and the global pandemic will not be the only thing that we’ll remember 2020 for.
A labour of love, we hope you like our selection presenting the most recent works and favourite pieces by designers we hold dear over 24 days.
This is the Solinfo Designer Guide.
„Design is a tool that allows us to reach out and inspire, to touch others and help make lives magic and wonderful.” – Marcel Wanders
What are you most proud of as far as this year is concerned?
“I am extremely proud that we have been able to maintain the full staff of MOOOI as well as my studio. We were able to protect our harmonious corporate culture, while also creating exciting new works.”
The biggest thing from Marcel Wanders this year: Hubble Bubble
Hubble Bubble, designed by Marcel Wanders for Moooi this year, takes you back to your childhood, to the freedom of running barefoot in the open air, blowing bubbles that the light summer wind would blow far away. This is the memory that the blown glass spheres overhead conjure up.
What is your priority project for next year?
“I believe next year will see flexibility, adaptability and empathy move into focus. For me, these will be the priorities, which will enable me to learn and become stronger day after day.”
The choice of Solinfo’s experts: Roche Bobois Globe Trotter
The Globe Trotter collection created for Roche Bobois is a tribute to the adventurer we all have inside. Each and every piece is a treasure brought back from a long journey, radiating the charm and moods of distant lands.
What represents eternal inspiration for you?
“Humanity is constantly faced with new challenges – be that physical, mental or cultural or even one posed by nature. It is up to us to understand, recognise, share and resolve these challenges; to help people progress.”
If the Hubble Bubble lamp designed by Marcell Wanders or
the Roche Bobois Globetrotter collection
have captured your imagination, come find them at the Roche Bobois Showroom.

“Simply put, design has always thrilled and excited us. We believe that we are deeply affected by the objects we surround ourselves with. Christmas is a wonderful occasion to surprise one another with true value.”
Thank you for cooperating and being with us this year, and we wish you happy holidays and a successful new year.
