Bola – Michel Charlot (Portugal)

A bold, symmetrical sphere clad in Uniform Melange by Kvadra Febrik - Bola by Swiss industrial designer Michel Charlot is a playful form that takes advantage of the unique material properties of knitted textiles. Charlot sought to create an efficient, intuitive form, whose dimensions are dictated by the width of the rolls that Kvadrat Febrik textiles are produced in. Bola’s shape celebrates the pliability of knitted textiles, which can easily mould to cover both simple and complex geometric forms. The sphere is dressed in a simple two-piece pattern in contrasting hues that highlight the elemental geometry of the piece.
