Upholstered either in fabric or leather and suited to both residential and public spaces, Mini Papilio Armchair by Naoto Fukasawa for B&B Italia echoes the characteristics of the iconic Grande Papilio armchair, only on a smaller scale.
The playful design features a swivel base allowing 360-degree rotation with automatic return to the pre-set position. The image is that of a chair that welcomes you gracefully — with the graceful movement of a butterfly, or papilio in Latin. Fluidly designed around an upside-down truncated cone, the welcoming and sinuous shape of the seat and back ensures the utmost comfort to the user. The wings that extend beyond the sides of the chair emphasize the feeling of comfort by supporting the hips and back.
