Knoll Butterfly Chair Anniversary Edition
Designer: Antonio Bonet, Juan Kurchan & Jorge Ferrari-Hardoy 1938
For its 80th anniversary Knoll pays tribute to design originality, creating a special edition of the Butterfly chair. The year 1938 was a very fertile one for design history: among many developments, the Knoll company was founded, and a very special chair was designed, which Hans Knoll decided to include in the firm’s catalogue from 1947 to 1951, meeting with remarkable success.
Eighty years later, Knoll returns to this timeless armchair to reinvent it with some important improvements today made possible thanks to modern technological know-how and craftsmanship. It is the quality of the materials that makes the lines even more sinuous and dynamic. The thermoformed felt is crafted into a self-supporting structure to serve as both seating and covering. Lasershaped,this can be assembled directly onto the structure, without the need for sewing, for ultimate comfort and style. Such innovative details further enhance a classic of the history of design.
Chrome, Black or White base. Felt is available in different colours.
