Originals Butterfly Chair
Lucian Ercolani for ercol
The voluptuous curves on this design create an intrinsically eye-catching chair. The inherent springiness in the bent plies of the seat and back and the sculpted recessed shape, as well as the moulded wing shaped back provide a comfortable sit.
A feature of this dining chair is the classic Windsor wedge joint, where the leg of the chair goes right through the seat; a wedge is then inserted into a cut in the leg, forming a remarkably strong joint. Sanded off flush with the seat, the joint then provides a beautiful design element.
First launched in 1958 the Butterfly chair is as fresh today. With its distinctive curved bent plies, reminiscent of the profile of a butterfly’s wings, the butterfly chair is one of ercol’s most iconic designs.
