Butterfly Twin Chair[edit | edit source]
Bárbara Giménez Weinbaum has reinterpreted one of the most influential design classics of the 20th century. Weinbaum has expanded the sculptural forms of the Hardoy Butterfly Chair and translated them into a sofa. Based on the draft by Bonet, Kurchan and Ferrari-Hardoy, the resulting two-seater picks up the harmonious geometry of the original design and offers seating comfort. It is a timeless eye-catcher and aesthetic sofa in one.
The Butterfly Twin Chair was awarded in March 2013 for high design quality with the renowned red dot award. In particular, the careful reinterpretation of one of the 20th century’s most influential design classics helped winning over the 37-member jury of experts.
