Bjarke Ingels Group explains the design process behind Nawabari

The Danish Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG) newly constructed their office space in Copenhagen. The space features the furniture collection Nawabari, designed in collaboration with BoConcept.

'We were trying to find a new way of expressing furniture', Jakob Lange and Bjarke Ingels, the creative minds behind BIG, explain. 'We were interested in the forms that are created when a material is bound with rope. The result is these sculptural organic shapes that form the core of this furniture family.'

The collection is inspired by the 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.
