Introducing Nawabari

A BoConcept + BIG collaboration

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.”

The art of connection

These statement seating forms create physical spaces to bring people together and make new connections. Exploring the intersection between work, life and play, these contemporary pieces are equally as showstopping in a hotel lobby and gallery as they are in a residential space or open plan office.
