Butterflies in flight—Naoto Fukasawa applied that image to the design of his Grande Papilio Armchair for B&B Italia, a swivel lounge chair that welcomes its sitter with the graceful movement of a butterfly.

Grande Papilio was designed with fluidity around an upside-down truncated cone. The curved shape of its cozy seat is a clear sign of a desire to offer maximum comfort to the sitter. The wings that extend at the sides of the chair emphasize the sensation of comfort: they help support the hips and the back. The same spirit of simplicity, immediacy, and comfort have guided the functional development of the entire Papilio series: the Piccolo Papilio armchair, the Papilio stools, the Papilio and Mini Papilio chairs, the Love Papilio sofa, and the Papilio bed.
