Details: The Butterfly chair was first created in 1938 by the Austral Group in Buenos Aries, Argentina, where it was designed by the three architects Antonio Bonet, Juan Kurchan and Jorge Ferrari Hardoy. The celebrated chair has won numerous awards around the world and it has been featured in the collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York City since 1944, where curator Edgar Kaufmann Jr. called it one of the "best efforts of modern chair design." Today this popular icon of modernity is still made in its country of origin: Argentina. The above Vaqueta London model is an authentic reproduction with the classic London premium leather seat cover and solid black iron frame. Unlike cheap replicas you will find online and in stores, this BKF version is handmade and superior in both quality and design. It ships from Argentina.
