Interpretative approach: Arper relaunches Lina Bo Bardi’s Bowl chair

Italian brand Arper worked with the Instituto Lina Bo and P.M. Bardi to relaunch of a limited edition version of the Bowl chair that was originally designed by late Modernist architect Lina Bo Bardi in 1951. Bo Bardi envisioned the Bowl chair as flexible in structure, while universal and essential in form. The change in techniques since Bo Bardi’s time necessitated an interpretative approach by Arper, the challenge being to remain faithful to the original design while adapting to the contemporary conditions of industrial production. For instance, the frame of the upholstered seat was produced in lightweight plastic as opposed to heavy hand-forged iron as specified in Bo Bardi’s original drawings. The relaunched chair is available in 22 color and fabric options, including black leather.
