Grande Papilio Outdoor Lounge
Grande Papilio outdoor lounge chair features an internal powder-coated aluminum frame that has been expertly laced with anthracite polyethylene to create a compelling visual pattern and texture reminiscent of a soft woven reed. The lounge underside features leveling glides composed of stainless and plastic. Papilio is also available in two other sizes – Piccola and Mini – these other versions are featured in separate listings. Grande Papilio can also be paired with the matching, gently-scooped Papilio ottoman.
“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.
This was the designer’s sentiment on creating his extraordinarily sculptural Grande Papilio originally created in 2009 as a generously sized upholstered lounge chair for indoor use – its sensuous feel was recently adapted in new materials for use outdoors. Like the original, it features a gently scooped seat that creates subtly integrated armrests – it’s integrated and outwardly canted back arches at the top to create an enveloping backrest for the sitter.
