The designer Jordi Pla has created a collection with rounded lines and a simple, accommodating feel for Normann Copenhagen. The Bop Chair and Table have a functional design and gets their personality from a playful balance between the grown-up and childlike modes of expression.
Jordi Pla’s designs are often inspired by nature. This is clearly evident in the Bop collection which evokes thoughts of the Baobab tree, known for its characteristically stout trunk. The designer has worked with shapes, proportions, thickness and details giving Bop a soft yet robust feel.
Jordi Pla says: ”As a designer, I think one of the most difficult things is to create a chair, as there are so many on the market it can be difficult to come up with something new. My aim was to give the chair its own unique character, and I made a total of 200 sketches before I came up with the right design. I have played around with the balance between grown-up and childlike modes of expression to give the chair personality, and I hope that people feel like smiling when they see it.”
”It was also important to me that both chair and table employed the same feel as well as being able to function independently of one another. The Bop table has its own unique character, which for example, is underlined by the materials and colors being different for each table and chair.”
