Mini Papilio Leather Chairs by Naoto Fukasawa for B&B Italia

About

Beautiful swivel leather chair designed by Naoto Fukasawa for B&B Italia and part of the "Papilio" series. These chairs have a beautiful shape and are very comfortable, they swivel and are perfect to be used as side chairs or dining chairs, we have a total of 5 chairs however we have listed only 4 and the price listed is for 4 chairs. The chairs are in good condition with minor use and a few marks on the leather due to previous use. Measurements: 29" high x 21.5" wide x 21 5/8" deep x 18.5" seat height. Butterflies in flight. The design image was that of a chair that would "welcome" gracefully - with the graceful movement of a butterfly - which in Latin is called a "papilio". Grande Papilio was designed with fluidity around an upside-down truncated cone. The ample space of its large upper back and the curved shape of its cosy seat are a clear signs of a desire to offer maximum comfort to anyone who wants to sit it this chair. This is a truly iconic product, even though its aesthetics were not a high priority according to the designer. Fukasawa, who puts people's behaviour before an interest for shape, said: “I wanted the chair to look naturally comfortable, to have the same shape that relaxation would have if it were represented by an image." The wings that extend at the sides of the chair emphasize the sensation of comfort: in the chair and the small armchair, they help support the hips and the back; in the Grande Papilio chair and the Love Papilio sofa, they cushion the head to offer isolation and tranquillity.
