With a shared Danish design tradition and ambition to democratise great design, BoConcept has partnered with global architects BIG - Bjarke Ingels Group - to launch its exclusive “Nawabari” Collection.
The collection design, led by Partner and Head of BIG Products Jakob Lange, is inspired by an ancient Japanese art form of binding with ropes to forge close bonds. Nawa means rope in Japanese and the term “Nawabari” traditionally translates as stretching rope.
“When starting out with this collection we were looking for a new way of expressing furniture”, says Lange. “We were interested in the forms that are created when a material is bound with rope. The result is these sculptural organic shapes that become the core of this furniture family.”
Transforming Social Spaces
Combining BoConcept’s simplicity and elegance with BIG’s future-thinking aesthetic, Nawabari is designed to transform shared spaces. Nawabari gives you the opportunity to create a comfortable lounge, a space for restoration or stylish break out area. Comprising two sofa options, an armchair, two coffee tables and two sized pouffes, Nawabari's unique design is ready to be used however you need it.
BIG - Bjarke Ingels Group - is a Copenhagen, New York, London, Barcelona, Shenzhen and Los Angeles-based group of architects, designers, urbanists, landscape professionals, interior and product designers, researchers, and inventors.
