  • Miami, FL (1888PressRelease) January 31, 2015 - Roche Bobois Paris, the world's largest designer and distributor of high-end contemporary home furnishings, was among a select group of sponsors of Jet Aviation's 15th annual La Bella Macchina (The Beautiful Machine). The event, which took place January 22nd at the Jet Aviation facility at the Palm Beach International Airport, is a private, lifestyle celebration in conjunction with the Cavallino Classic in Palm Beach. The invitation-only fête was attended by over 1,000 executives, socialites and Ferrari enthusiasts who made their way along the red carpet to raise funds for the Boys and Girls Clubs of Palm Beach County through a silent auction of luxury items and experiences. Guests enjoyed elaborate displays of gourmet delicacies throughout the vast hangar paired with fine wines and spirits.

    Roche Bobois was among some of the most respected global brands to sponsor what many consider one of "the" events of The Palm Beaches' social season, displaying more than 100 classic and late-model Ferraris. Star attractions also included luxurious business jets and helicopters from Gulfstream, Dassault Falcon, Embraer, Bombardier and others. Among the "machines," both large and small, was Roche Bobois' iconic, motorized Astrolab dining table from their North Palm Beach showroom. Beneath an imposing, beveled glass tabletop is a visible, mechanized cog system of glistening wheels and gears that, when activated via remote control, enlarge the table with glass extension leaves. Roche Bobois' display was also complemented by their acclaimed Mah Jong sectional sofa featuring custom fabric from haute couturier Jean Paul Gaultier.

    Julien Bigan, Roche Bobois' U.S. communications director said, "This is an incredible event, attended by an international league of executives, entrepreneurs, physicians, entertainers and other very successful professionals in various fields.

    These are precisely the individuals for whom our lines are created - those who appreciate fine European design, exquisite materials and extensive customization. The Astrolab table is one of our most distinctive and talked-about pieces. Its mechanization made it a perfect addition to the other amazing 'Macchinas' on display at this spectacular event."

    At the same time, North Palm Beach showroom manager Gia Morales, who spearheaded Roche Bobois' participation in the event, added, "It was incredible to see the number of people who were utterly amazed by the table. Given the lifestyle they enjoy, one would think they have seen everything. Not so. This was a first for them, and they couldn't stop watching it in motion. It was a lot of fun."

    Jet Aviation is one of the leading business aviation services companies in the world, with nearly 4,500 employees in over 20 facilities throughout Europe, the Middle East, Asia and North and South America.

    Roche Bobois has over 270 showrooms around the world including North Palm Beach, (561) 835-4982, Coral Gables and one opening this February in Aventura. For information, call or visit
