Bao is the latest fruit in the long lasting partnership with Walter Knoll. In form defined by the gesture of an embracement, the turnable and compact armchair manifests itself in the room like a big bow. The cut of the distinct materials of leather and fabric are similarly tailored as for a leather ball.
The change from one material to the other took quite some thought and is possible due to an invisible zip and a clean finish. By the way, the name “Bao” means “hugging, embracing” in Chinese.
