Papilio Shell by Naoto Fukasawa is linked through its name to the previous family of very successful chairs and armchair by the Japanese designer, but has an independent history. Originating from a shell with a design that enhance comfort, it expresses considerable versatility that makes it perfect in different situations, not just at home. Papilio Shells is available in two versions: with plastic shell in three colours (white, dove gray, black) or padded and upholstered in a wide range of fabrics and leathers. Different types of bases give the chair different looks for different uses. The chromed or painted tubular legs simplify the piece, and when combined with the plastic shell make the chair stackable. The legs in oak wood, in many different variants, make it more sophisticated. The aluminium star base, in bright brushed or painted aluminium, with or without castors, gives the chair a more technical look.
Papilio Shell is enriched with a new model with armrests, ideal choice for the study and the office. With plastic shell, or in the padded upholstered version, it has a swivel base with four spokes, either with or without castors, and glossy brushed aluminium armrests, or white, black and greige painted. The top part of the seat presents the colour and finish of the shell. The collection is completed by a stackable outdoor version, which features four metal legs in glossy stainless steel, or white and greige painted like the shell.
