Butterflies inspired the name and shape of this piece: the Japanese designer, Nato Fukasawa, took the lightness of nature and turned it into a chair. The resemblance is clear in the shape of the backrest, which looks like the multi-coloured wings of a butterfly unfolded to launch into flight.

Papilio shell chair by B&B Italia is a Weisshouse favorite. The curves and conical structure, maintains great comfort and particular organic shape that made the series (armchairs, sofas, chairs) a contemporary icon. The Papilio shell chair is available for indoor and outdoor use and is commercially graded with a polypropylene shell. Its available in three colours (white, greige, black) or padded and upholstered in a wide range of fabrics and leathers.
