Designed in 1951 in Bo Bardi’s adopted home of Brazil, the Bowl Chair, by no means industrialized until now, is an icon of Lina Bo Bardi’s adaptive style.

With the combination of bowl and base, the modular chair can be positioned to carry out myriad functions. “Upright and gathered round a coffee table, the chair becomes a catalyst for social interaction angled downwards, a nest to submerge into with a excellent book. When set with opening perpendicular to the floor, the chair becomes 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 structure even though universal and essential in type. But, as with all of Bo Bardi’s designs, the ultimate emphasis remains on the human interaction with the object.”
