General Information

Maintaining posture casually.

Employing the most simple means, thispiece of furniture offers the highestpossible degree of relaxation. The leatherskin arching out in all directionsmakes the chair seem as if it werestretched out in space; meanwhile, youcan sit remarkably comfortable in it –and that is the decisive factor – withoutever losing your posture.

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 strong leather, out of which theseat’s surface is made, is vegetabledyed; this saddle leather from Argentiniancattle is processed according totraditional methods in one of the tanneriesin Santa Fe specialized in the productionof such leather. The strong leatheris hardly “smoothed out;” it still revealsclear traces of the animal’s life.The handcrafted manufacturing – withthe producer in Sweden – follows thecharacter of the material. 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.

Delicate base.

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.
