Designed for maximum comfort and usability.

Informed by Alda Ly Architecture’s ethos of inspired design thinking and close attention to user experience, the Bao collection is designed for maximum comfort and usability. Bridging the gap between formal and informal, sedate and lively, this collection is the first furniture collaboration between the API women-owned firm and HBF with a charming play on the Chinese word “bao”—a homonym for bun, bag, precious and baby.

Available in six base archetypes—small, medium, large half-round, stacking, low loop handle and high loop handle—and two seat heights, lounge and work, to activate any space with its versatility. It retains its playful and collaborative spirit while serving as a space-saving and stylish seating companion for conversations in professional and private settings. SCS Indoor Advantage Gold Certified and meets the ANSI/BIFMA Level 2 Furniture Sustainability Standard.
