Designed by Naoto Fukasawa’s for B&B Italia, the Grande Papilio armchair has an organic form with fluid curves for the ultimate in comfort and relaxation. It is a contemporary take on the traditional armchair with a high backrest and supportive sides that echo the shape and form of a graceful butterfly.

Appearing like a single form carved, or perhaps poured, from a single material, the Grande Papilio armchair has a clever rear upholstery zip that removes all visible upholstery details creating a seamless sculptural object. As part of its remarkable comfort the design is equipped with a swivel mechanism that allows the user to rotate through 360 degrees.

We have a navy example for sale now and ready to deliver. It has been gently used and shows wear consistent with age. It has no tears and major faults but would probably benefit from a quick steam clean.
