Coolors Collection

Boca do Lobo

Privately Held; 51-200 employees; Design industry

2005Present (9 years)

The power of color is a cool phenomenon which inspired the creation of the COOLORS collection. Colors play an important role in our physical environment. They are used for their aesthetics as well as their ability to influence the human psyche through the stimulation of one's visual sense. Colors induce many emotions and states of mind most of which are subjective, however some are more universal such as the ability of warm colors to create a feeling of comfort and the calming effects of cool colors. By associating color sensations with our collection, we intend to stimulate emotions that allow all who come in contact with our designs the chance to identify themselves with them and bring some color into their world.

Boca do Lobo's Honors and Awards

  • Nelly Rodi | Trend 2015 "Smart Life"

    Nelly Rodi
    • September 2014

    Digital technology has changed our behavior and lifestyles forever. It’s all so fast now! We are constantly connected, with information instantly shared on the social networks among friends and a mass of unidentified people, voicing opinions and confirming choices in a happy, optimistic spirit. The aim of this session is to place the spotlight on just how all these permanent interactions, positive energy, graphic vocabulary, typographies, messages, photos and colors hailing from digital technology and video games, create new needs and influence creativity in terms of design and decoration.

  • Nelly Rodi | Trend 2014 "Beyonde"

    Nelly Rodi
    • January 2014

    Elsewhere in abysses and space. Immediate boarding for the most final distant lands. At the edges of space or in oceanic depths, we are diving into the unknown. A contemporary cabinet of curiosities is bringing together sea-punks and mermaids in mid-water, robots and astronauts searching for new frontiers. The infinitely far is opening up new vistas for creation. A bizarre beauty, strange and mysterious, stellar and astonishing. The pieces selected were Feel Lamps.

  • Nelly Rodi | Trend 2013 "FUNT@SY"

    Nelly Rodi
    • September 2013

    The Energy of Fantasy picks Times Goes By Clock and Marie Thérese Mirror as trends.
    Style is thumbing its nose and the dogma of seriousness. A cunning maximalism is making life happier. Disrespectful mash-ups, quirky subversions, provocative collages and chaotic combinations are mixing up the codes of neoclassical culture and digital pop culture. Chic and striking, the new iconoclastic bling style is going all in for boldness. On the entertainment menu: Humor, derision and quirkiness.

  • .Nelly Rodi | Trend 2013 "Renascience"

    Nelly Rodi
    • January 2013

    We are pleased to announce that four pieces of our collection were selected to stage in Nelly Rodi's forum space "Renaissance", at Maison & Objet, from 18 to 22 of January 2013, Paris Nord Villepinte.

  • Nelly Rodi | Trend 2012 "Sweet Freaks"

    Nelly Rodi
    • January 2012

    One more time Boca do Lobo is considered trend by the prestigious french agency. The pieces selected were Millionaire Safe, Heritage Sideboard, Root Mirror, Venice mirror.
    With SWEET FREAKS "We wanted to revolve around this concept of nice monstrosities, translating the idea of craziness through a more incredible, bizarre, slightly absurd... almost mutant point of view."
    Vincent Grégoire describing his ideas for 2012 trends for Nelly Rodi Agency.

  • Nelly Rodi | Trend 2011 "Hypnotic"

    Nelly Rodi
    • January 2011

    HYPNOTIC: By Vincent Gregoire - Agence NellyRodi
    Diamond Amethyst, Pixel Bar were part of the selection.
    'Come enter a time of transformation without fear. Motion, light, and 3-D effects are revitalizing spaces, revealing new perspectives. An angular, fractal geometry is reconfiguring a kinetic aesthetic that is troubling our gaze. Complex, fragmented forms are mixing it up. Mirror reflections are heightening reality. Techno-sensitive engineering is programming a magical narrative that is reactivating emotions and intensifying everyday life'

  • .Nelly Rodi | Trend 2010 "Please Disturb"

    Nelly Rodi
    • September 2010

    Frank Chest of Drawers were the selected piece.
    Our era is running wild. Nothing is hidden anymore. In plain sight, decorative guerilla tactics are pirating the codes of propriety. To hell with the cosseted discretion of conventional-minded petty bourgeois sitting rooms. Supercharged energy is intruding into a world kept under tight surveillance, where video cameras and scanners monitor our comings and goings.

  • .Nelly Rodi | Trend 2009 "Iconoclash"

    Nelly Rodi avec Marie Claire Maison
    • January 2009

    Mondrian and Soho Sideboards, coolors side tables were selected trends.
    The idea behind the exhibit was that the recent global economic crisis ripped the rug out from under us and has left us unbalanced, our normal ways of thinking didn’t make sense anymore.
    Rather than giving up the fight while waiting for Apocalypse or recovers, Grégoire’s exhibit is a kind of “safety valve” to alleviate some of the pressure we find ourselves under. Philosopher Gilles Lipovetsky discusses the existence of a “humoristic society” in his book “The Age of Emptiness.” In an absurd world that is desperately searching for meaning, nonsense creates a new order and scathing humor mocks the situation destabilizing us.

    In our society, decoration is the flag-bearer of messages -- think advertising slogans and graffiti. Iconoclash was very quirky and subversive in its recycling of old things to create fantastical new ones and displayed a healthy sense of irony. The main message of Iconoclash is to give more weight to things that are not so serious. The proverbial “spoonful of sugar that helps the medicine go down” espoused by everyone’s favorite governess Mary Poppins. This kind of insolence puts the things in our world that take themselves too seriously in its place.

    • Diseñart Magazine
    Authors: Boca do Lobo

    "Boca do Lobo acaba de producir una edición limitada de su armario Oporto, un diseño inspirado en la ciudad portuguesa que le da nombre. Considerado el tra- bajó más personal de la firma, Oporto está realizado en madera cubierta por 600 escamas, cada una de ellas, a su vez, cubierta con una hoja de plata
    y retocada con barniz brillante. Las puertas del armario combinan el color azul brillante con las escamas de plata, lo que crea una sensación de imagen pixelada y una superficie que juega con los relieves. El interior está cubierto por una hoja de plata y contiene tres estantes de vidrio. www.bocadolobo.com"
