Original Deep Brown Leather Hardoy Butterfly Chair, Issued by Knoll, 1950s

About the Item

Vintage Butterfly Chair with chocolate brown leather sling, designed by Antonio Bonet, Juan Kurchan & Jorge Ferrari-Hardoy, issued by Knoll. An iconic mid-century design with a relaxed and rugged vibe. The chair's distinctive look comes from a leather sling that effortlessly hangs from the frame, offering a comfortable and inviting seat that conforms to the body's contours. Our vintage example has the original saddle leather sling in a dramatic dark brown tone, exhibiting a desirable age and patina. Minimalist frame appears light and dynamic, yet constructed from robust iron. Iron frame is sturdy and strong, with all welds intact, in a black enameled finish. In fantastic vintage condition, with age-appropriate wear. 29” wide x 30” deep x 33” high Seat height 13”
