This armchair, Butterfly model, was designed by the famous French designer Pierre Paulin in 1954 then produced by Artifort in 1963. It is composed of a base in chromed steel rod reminiscent of the flight of a butterfly. The seat and backrest are formed by two strips of stretched black leather giving the impression of floating in the air. The proof of its authenticity lies in the seam of the leather made from a thick lace.
This armchair is an essential model of 20th century design, we love it! It fits perfectly into all interiors, all styles of decoration. It is a piece of different styles from what we can know from the designer.
This armchair is part of the collection of two museums: the Moma in New York and the National Gallery of Victoria in Melbourne.
