A Timeless style. The Butterfly chair was designed in 1938 by Argentinian Architects Antonio Bonet, Juan Kurchan and Jorge Ferrari Hardoy who were working with the Le Corbusier Studio.

(We all know the Le Corbusier Chair). 

The chair was developed for an apartment building in Buenos Aires but was quickly picked up by a US publication as the 'newly invented Argentinian Easy Chair - "for siesta sitting" and by 1940 the chair had been awarded 2nd prize in the prestigious "Salon de Artistas Decoradores" exhibition. 

This publicity attracted the attention of the Museum of Modern Art in New York and also Frank Lloyd Wright for his famous "Fallingwater" House. The rest is history.

 Our Butterfly Chairs have been designed to be generous in size to fit the European frame. Handmade in Mexico with one-piece solid iron frames.
