Vintage Industrial Brown Leather Butterfly Chair
Origins of the butterfly chair - the BKF
The first version of the Butterfly chair was designed in Buenos Aires, Argentina in 1938 by the architects Antonio Bonet, Juan Kurchan and Jorge Ferrari Hardoy, which is why it is also sometimes known as the BKF chair, for Bonet-Kurchan-Ferrari. The original design was composed of two bent tubular steel rods and a leather sling creating a suspended seat. The frame of the classic butterfly chair is traditionally painted black; the sling is brown leather.
