Born in 1951, brought to life in 2014: Lina Bo Bardi’s Bowl Chair

Italian manufacturer Arper has put designer Lina Bo Bardi's "Bowl Chair" into production for the very first time since the late Italian-Brazilian designed the piece in 1951, pioneering a more relaxed approach to seating, that was (perhaps a bit too) radical for the time. The reissued chair debuted in Milan last year, and is now available. Working closely with the Instituto Lina Bo e P.M. Bardi, Arper worked from the only existing original prototype (!) and Bo Bardi's design sketches. (more after the jump)
