The butterfly. With all legs on the floor.
From our perspective, this chair, whosepredecessor became famous in the1950’s as the “Butterfly Chair” (or batchair), is still one of the most successfulchairs of its type. The originalwas a modest chair with a branchedframe designed in the 1930’s by the Argentinianarchitects Bonet Castellana,Kuchan, and Hardoy-Ferrari. Our modelclosely resembles this original model inits form and bears the name “Mariposa” – butterfly.
Close to the origin.

The leather issewn angularly: in comparison to a pipedseam this is a very elaborate typeof production, which not only placesemphasis on the optical, but also offersthe technical advantage that the seamsaccompany every movement of thestrong leather.
The leather is mounted into a framemade of powder-coated rounded steelbars (of Swedish production), which isdelivered disassembled in individualparts and can easily be put togetherusing the enclosed aluminum die castconnector. For this reason, each deliverycontains, in addition to the assemblyinstruction, mounting screws and acorresponding tool.
