BardI’s Bowl Chair

Limited Edition

Design Lina Bo Bardi 1951, edited by Arper in 2012

Revolutionary for its time, the Bardi's Bowl Chair transformed the way people sat. As opposed to the prevailing angular forms and upright chairs, Lina Bo Bardi introduced rounder shapes encouraging a natural and more relaxed posture. To create the Bowl Chair, Arper engaged in intensive dialogues with the Institute Lina Bo e P.M. Bardi evaluating the original iterations for size, interior structure, upholstery detailing - down to the quality and size of the stitching - and softness of the seat. Every detail, down to the small leather covers placed around the round steel frame of the chair to hold it in place, was carefully reinterpreted.

Arper explored different modes of interpretation of color for this touchstone of Brazilian modernist design.
