Butterfly TWIN CHAIR leather anthracite
Following the work of Patricia Urquiola and Eduardo Chillida, Bárbara Giménez Weinbaum has reinterpreted one of the most influential design classics of the 20th Century. As a former student of the Madrid School of Architecture, Weinbaum has expanded the sculptural forms of the Hardoy Butterfly Chair and translated them into a sofa. Based on the draft by Bonet, Kurchan and Ferrari-Hardoy, the resulting two-seater picks up the harmonious geometry of the original design and offers exceptional seating comfort. It is a timeless eye-catcher and aesthetic sofa in one.
Based on the repetition concept used in art, Giménez Weinbaum has doubled the base of the frame, the sofa offers thus space for two adults. In accordance with other models from our DESIGN CLASSICS collection we use only vegetatively tanned leather from Catalonian producers for covering the Butterfly TWIN CHAIR. The stainless steel frame, delicately welded at six crossing points, is sent in its standard version with a brushed surface. If you want a powder coating in black or white, please note this in the last step of your order.
Like all of our pieces is also the Butterfly TWIN CHAIR exclusively manufactured in Germany and Spain. Reduced dimensions and its light weight permit flexible use in the office, at home or in public spaces.
