Twenty years after her death, Lina Bo Bardi is still recognized as an icon of modern architecture and her work is considered a bridge between ideologies, geographies and different ways of seeing the world. As the dense vegetation that now surrounds her Casa de Vidro in the neighborhood of Morumbi in  Sao Paulo (designed and built as Bardi’s home, currently houses the  Bo Bardi Institute), the Italian-Brazilian architect’s work continues to grow over time, impetuous and fertile, producing fruits unpredictable and captivating. One of these fruitful projects is   the ‘futuristic’  Bardi’s Bowl Chair. Designed in 1951, it seems a work from the last Salone del Mobile: a hemispherical seat, simply leaning against a metal ring structure supported by four legs. Initially exclusive part of the furnishings of the house, is now edited for the first time by Arper.
