The story behind this product

For its 80th anniversary Knoll pays tribute to design originality, creating a special edition of the Butterfly chair. The year Knoll was founded in 1938 was also the year the Butterfly Chair was designed, which Hans Knoll decided to include in the firm’s catalogue from 1947 to 1951, meeting with remarkable success. The Butterfly Chair's dynamic lines are made possible by the quality of the materials involved; the black coated steel structure and the thermoformed felt seat. 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. The technological prowess and fine craftsmanship of Knoll ensure the comfort and elegance.
