Lina Bo Bardi



Devoting her life to the promotion of the social and cultural potential of architecture and design, Brazilian architect and designer Lina Bo Bardi produced varied work: from architectural projects and publications to modern furniture. Her furniture was most often made from native Brazilian woods, which she admired for their strength and beauty. Effortlessly combining industrialized production with good design, Bo Bardi’s furniture, like her overall practice, was playful and accessible yet deeply rooted in the history of modernism and design.
