French manufacturing company Airborne brings back a classic chair from the 1930s

The Butterfly Chair (or BKF Chair) was designed in 1938 by Juan Kurchan, Jorge Ferrari-Hardoy and Antonio Bonnet. Its structure is made from black epoxy-lacquered steel and the seat cover is made from leather. The sales of Butterfly chairs exceeded five million pieces in the 1950s, but Knoll Furniture stopped making the BKF chair in 1951. Thanks to Airborne, a French manufacturing company, the classic has now returned and is back in production.
