Made in 1951 in Bo Bardi’s adopted home of Brazil, the Bowl Chair, never ever industrialized until now, is an icon of Lina Bo Bardi’s adaptive fashion.

With the mixture of bowl and base, the modular chair can be positioned to execute myriad functions. “Upright and gathered round a coffee table, the chair gets a catalyst for social interaction angled downwards, a nest to submerge into with a very good guide. When set with opening perpendicular to the floor, the chair turns into a cradle for a sheltered nap.” says Arper.

“Balancing the worlds of industrialized fabrication and the individualized object, Bo Bardi envisioned the Bardi’s Bowl Chair as versatile in construction even though universal and crucial in type. But, as with all of Bo Bardi’s types, the greatest emphasis remains on the human interaction with the object.”
