Grande Papilio Lounge
Grande Papilio is an extraordinarily sculptural and sensuous lounge chair that features a gently scooped seat that creates subtle integrated arm rests; its integrated and outwardly canted back arches at the top to create an enveloping backrest for the sitter. The discreet addition of a swivel disc base on Papilio’s underside allows the user to swivel when sitting in the chair. Its removable cover features a vertical zipper in the back of the chair that runs from the base to the top edge of the backrest – its clever placement coupled with the associated textural juxtaposition of its stainless composition with the fabric cover is wonderfully engaging.
“I wanted this kind of chair to look obviously comfortable; to have the kind of shape that ‘relaxation’ might take if it were portrayed in a picture. There had to be something encompassing” – Naoto Fukasawa.
The Grande Papilio lounge chair features a steel internal frame with Bayfit (Bayer) flexible cold-shaped polyurethane foam with polyester padding. The underside swivel base is composed of gray painted steel laminate and aluminum extrusion. Papilio is available in two sizes – Grande and Piccola. The latter, available in a separate listing, has essentially a smaller footprint than the original Grande version making it a lounge chair better suited to smaller spaces. An ottoman is also available to be used with the Grande Papilio.
While Grande Papilio is available with numerous upholstery cover options, it is also available as part of our Quick Ship program with the matching ottoman upholstered in B&B Italia’s luxe Gamma 199 leather in an anthracite black color.
