Mini Papilio by Naoto Fukasawa for B&B Italia (2 available)
Upholstered either in fabric or leather and suited to both residential and public spaces, Mini Papilio echoes the characteristics of the iconic Grande Papilio armchair, only on a smaller scale. The playful design features a swivel base allowing 360 degree rotation with automatic return to the pre-set position. The image is that of a chair that welcomes you gracefully – with the graceful movement of a butterfly, or “papilio” in Latin. Fluidly designed around an upside-down truncated cone, the welcoming and sinuous shape of the seat and back ensures utmost comfort to the user. The wings that extend beyond the sides of the chair emphasise the feeling of comfort by supporting the hips and back. The chair we have on offer is upholstered in a red wool fabric.
Always devoted to achieving simplicity and beauty, Naoto Fukasawa designs products for numerous internationally prestigious brands, as well as collaborating as designer and consultant for many major Japanese companies. His creativity embraces very different sectors, from precision electronic equipment to furniture and interior design.
