Lina Bo Bardi’s Bowl Chair

2014-01-13 New products

The Arper company, together with Instituto Lina Bo e P.M. Bardi recreated one of the design icons – a legendary Bowl chair by Lina Bo Bardi.
Solo Office Interiors among 60 dealers worldwide has a right to sell the Bowl Chair.

Lina Bo Bardi is a fashionable narrowly known architect and designer.
The exhibition «Lina Bo Bardi: Together» will take place in Paris from 11-13-2013 to 01-19-2014. The exhibition will tell about designer, her vision and philosophy. Arper produced a limited edition of Bowl Chairs to celebrate this event.

The first chair was designed by Lina in 1951. At the same year the unique iteration in black leather was created (the second one was produced later and partially modified). An idea of the Arper Chair`s recreation was proposed by a curator of the exhibition.

The Bowl Chair, thanks to combination of semi-spherical seat and basic structure ensures multifunctionality and flexibility. By changing its angle you can sit drinking tea, read a book in a comfortable pose or even have a nap, practically lying.  

Arper used numerous sketches by Lina in their working trying to recreate an original design and improve the chair using modern technologies. After three months of discussions and work, Arper, together with Instituto Lina Bo e P.M. Bardi achieved a result – they created the chair identical to the original one.

Arper decided to present the chair`s limited edition not in black leather as the initial one of 1951, but in color textiles adding a large amount of cushions: in the same color of the shell, in two different color shades or decorated with patterns inspired by Lina Bo Bardi’s original sketches.

The authenticity of 500 exclusive chairs is guaranteed by a nominal certificate complemented with samples, notes and quotes of the designer.
Thanks to this idea all the world can discover Lina Bo Bardi`s life and works.
