Bardot By Bernhardt

Just as the curves of the human body flow into one another, the same can be said of the Bardot. The absence of distinct angles and lines permit the exterior and interior to gently merge together, creating a continuous form that allows fabric to conform to its shape, similar to the way a dress fits the body. Inspired by the feminine silhouette, Hayon wanted the sofa to feel like a fruit, tender to the touch, while at the same time be extremely durable like combining the lightness and strength of a ballerina. Many sofas are too big to actually use in city apartments, so I wanted to make one that looked big and felt generous, but would actually work in smaller spaces. Even though it may have a deceivingly compact footprint, the comfortable and functional Bardot retains an impressive elegance regardless of its location.
