AA Chair – Butterfly chair


The AA Butterfly Canvas made with respect and spirit of the quality of the original 1938 model.

Its "recent" history dates back to the late 1930s.

Paternity of the chair is attributed to a trio of designer architects, most notably the Argentinian Jorge Ferrari-Hardoi (1914-1977).

The latter was a collaborator of Le Corbusier in Paris, at the same time as his compatriot Juan Kurchan (1913-1975) and the Catalan Antonio Bonnet (1913-1989).

The trio, who remained very influenced by their great master, then decided to join forces and, in 1938, founded the famous "Grupo Austral" in Buenos Aires.

This same year 1938 marked the birth of the mythical armchair, initially designed for their own practice and initially bearing the name Model No 198 or "BKF" (name using the initials of the trio: Bonnet Kurchan Ferrari).

It was then commonly called Butterfly.

This extremely sober design armchair consisted of a painted steel tube frame and a 4-piece sewn leather seat.
