GRANDE PAPILIO | Armchair

High-back swivel upholstered fabric armchair

Manufacturer B&B Italia

(2009)
Papilio Collection
The name recalls the butterfly because, as explained by the author, “the backrest designs the two wings with the head resting between them and protected by them.” It seems carved out of a block of material from which its inverted truncated cone shape derives. With a powerful personality, its swivel system facilitates contact with the surrounding environment. The chair includes an ottoman footrest for an absolutely relaxing position.

 - Swivel natural sheepskin armchair with footstool GRANDE PAPILIO 50° - B&B Italia Swivel natural sheepskin armchair with footstool To celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the company, established in Novedrate in 1966 by
Piero Ambrogio Busnelli, B&B Italia has changed the “skin” of the armchair with footstool
Grande Papilio, the seat designed by Naoto Fukasawa in 2009, and considered a cult item of contemporary design. Its unmistakeable sculptured profile features an enveloping back that seems to open like a butterfly’s wings, hence the armchair’s name. For this important anniversary, Grande Papilio 50° is manufactured in fifty numbered copies with an original natural sheepskin cover: fifty shades of white, as many as the number of hues of the original leathers, to soften its profile and generate an ideal link with the classical pieces of Scandinavian design.
 - Swivel high-back rope armchair GRANDE PAPILIO | Natural fibre armchair - B&B Italia Swivel high-back rope armchair Grande Papilio can also be in a new attire made of natural fibre in which the values of design meet expert craftsmanship. Made of abaca, the appearance remains intact without altering the curves. Both in the swivel chair and ottoman, the rope weave accents details, even the least perceptible ones. The manufacturing process is carried out in Asia, following a century old tradition. Skilled hands weave the product with the utmost care for detail, ensuring that each armchair is a unique unrepeatable item.
