Originally designed in 1938 by Antonio Bonet, Juan Kurchan and Jorge Ferrari Hardoy for a Buenos Aires apartment building, the cognac leather and black iron Butterfly Chair is an icon of modern design.
Expertly crafted in Germany to the design’s original specifications, the chair boasts an iron frame in a black finish and cognac leather seat cover.
A strikingly sculptural design, the Butterfly Chair has been part of the permanent collection at the Museum of Modern Art in NY since 1944.
Describing the piece as one of the 'best efforts of modern chair design', MoMA’s Design Director Edgar Kaufmann Junior predicted its lasting popularity, which was equally recognised by Hans Knoll, who began producing it in 1947.
