BOWL CHAIR DESIGNED BY LINA BO BARDI
Andrew Wallace, from Andrew Wallace Architects, an architect and interior designer from Liverpool went to an exhibition where they present the work of LinaBo Bardi.
Intended to challenge the conventional way in which we sit, the Bowl Chair encourages users to relax in unusual positions and explore more natural and comfortable ways of sitting.
The Bow Chair was celebrated for its design but was not put into industrial production during Bo Bardi’s lifetime. The two original examples – a black leather version, and one that paired bright red cushions with a transparent plastic shell – were handmade.
This Bowl Chair is part of a limited edition producted by furniture manufacturer Arper, which worked with the Instituto Lina Bo and PM Bardi to translate the designer’s original sketches and prototypes into a product suitable for modern manufacturing.
Liverpool architects and achitects elsewhere in the UK may be interested to see this exhibition.
