The Butterfly Lounge Chair occupies a special position in Knoll's design story. It was designed in the same year as the company's founding, 1938, and has remained an icon ever since. Relaunched for their 80th anniversary, the Butterfly features a laser cut felt seat and a stunning frame in chromium coated or painted steel. Suitable for homes of all tastes, it's your go-to for effortless comfort and seasonless style.
Materials & Finishes
Thanks to the technological prowess and fine craftsmanship of Knoll – indispensable allies to achieve products of the highest quality – today’s Butterfly has sinuous, dynamic lines, which are also made possible by the quality of the materials involved: the structure is in chromium-plated or coated steel, in white or black, while the seat is made with thermoformed felt. This element, in particular, represents the true innovation of the project, because thanks to its workmanship it becomes a self-supporting structure with the dual role of seat and covering. Furthermore, the laser shaping of the fabric, without added stitching, permits the direct interlock of the seat and the steel framework, ensuring comfort and elegance.
W 82 x D 76 x H 90 cm. Seat height: 32 cm.
