Contemporary flair: New shades of Lina Bo Bardi's Bowl chair from Arper

Arper announced three new shades of the Bowl chair.

Lina Bo Bardi designed the Bowl chair in 1951 with an adjustable semispherical form that rests on a metallic ring and four legs. The design never got introduced to the public until 64 years later by Italian design company Arper.

Now working with Bo Bardi’s foundation Instituto Lina Bo e P.M. Bardi, Arper reintroduced the chair in new colors and materials, giving it a fresh and contemporary flair. For Fall 2019, Bowl chair is available in sandy, shiny blue and iridescent brown, and can be complemented with monochrome or color block fabric cushions for a range of contract settings.
