Information

The art of furnishing: the Papilio chair

Art and ergonomics meet

B&B Italia's Papilio chair is the expression of skilfully fused aesthetics and functionality. Insulated from the frenzy of superfluous forms, this chair is a tribute to sinuosity and simplicity. A unique visual relief with its distinctive butterfly-inspired 'wings', Papilio offers two seating positions - one formal and one relaxed. The continuity of thickness and the light steel structure accentuate the formal balance. Dressed in leather or fabric, it is removable thanks to the metal zip, a functional and decorative detail. Available at our showrooms in Como and Lugano.

The origin of the name

B&B Italia and the Papilio design chair

The name 'Papilio' comes from Latin, meaning 'butterfly'. With its winged backrest, the chair perfectly exemplifies the freedom and lightness of a butterfly. Find it in our showrooms in Como and Lugano.

Innovation

B&B Italia and innovation in design

Papilio's design innovates in seating comfort. It allows both a formal and relaxed posture by leaning on one of the backrest 'wings'. The metal hinge is not only aesthetic, but functional for changing the upholstery. Available in Como and Lugano.

Why choose the Papilio chair?

The elegant simplicity of this Italian design chair

Papilio is the synthesis of functionality and aesthetics. Ergonomics merges with art in this chair that promises comfort and style. The design to accommodate two seating positions, one formal and one relaxed, makes it versatile for every situation. The use of leather or fabric offers customisation for every taste, while the metal zip adds a functional and decorative detail that emphasises attention to detail. This chair is not just a piece of furniture, it is a piece that enhances the beauty of the surrounding space, imparting a touch of elegance and modernity. Choosing Papilio means choosing a chair that brings art into your home or office, a chair that is more than just a functional element, but a true symbol of style and design. And if we talk about style and design, we cannot fail to mention the thin and light structure, which despite its apparent delicacy, promises strength and durability. Visiting our showrooms in Como and Lugano is an experience in itself, a journey through the best of modern and contemporary design, and it is there that you can admire the Papilio chair in its full splendour.
