The Bahia chair shown above takes its name from the colourful ribbons that cover its back. Bahia ribbons are a good luck charm which represent ‘Senhor do Bonfim’; a Saint from the state of Bahia in Brazil. It is a tradition in Brazil to attach these ribbons around your wrists and tie 3 knots, making a wish for each knot. When the ribbon eventually falls off the owner must release it into running water and the wishes are supposed to come true. 20age is a London based design studio that was set up last year by Emma Phelps and Mauricio Varlotta. The British/Brazilian duo specialise in sourcing and re-upholstering mid 20th century chair designs with luxurious fabrics. Using bold colours and playful textures, they create striking designs that are influenced by their combined Brazilian and English heritages.
