Bao

Armchair

Design

EOOS Design GmbH (Martin Bergmann, Gernot Bohmann, Harald Gründl), Austria

Red Dot
Spacious and round. It’s the curves that make Bao immediately appealing at first sight. It’s a sumptuous sculpture with an artistic back. Reminiscent of a leather ball, with leather patchwork forming its back. Flowing lines – sweeping and elegant. The swivelling armchair clearly combines materials whilst keeping them distinct: leather on the back, fabric on the seat. Everything has its place. Bao – as familiar as the gesture of a welcoming embrace.

Statement by the jury

»Its elegant and flowing form allows Bao perfectly to combine lightness and opulence.«
