Butterfly chair

Designer: Jorge Ferrari Hardoy


Directors: Cary Joji Fukunaga, Olivia Wilde

The Butterfly chair is featured in many films including The Moon Is Blue (1953), the Bond No Time To Die and Don’t Worry Darling.

The original was designed by Hardoy but their are many variations on the theme available to buy for your own home.

Describing the Hardoy Butterfly chair in 1938 as one of the ‘best efforts of modern chair design’, MoMA Design Director Kauffman predicted its lasting popularity, and its commercial potential, which was equally recognised by Hans Knoll, who began producing the Hardoy Butterfly chair in 1947.

The chair comes in various seat coverings from linen to leather, and a number of different leg colours. You can often find vintage originals and newly manufactured versions are also available.
