More about this product

Inspired by the armchair Grande Papilio, it doubles the comfort provided without losing its iconic character. Statuesque, ergonomically precise in the comfort offered to two people, the small size of the sofa is ideal even for small environments. Centrally placed in the room, its high back divides the room and protects the privacy of the user.

Base-frame Metallic grey color painted aluminum laminate
Ferrules Thermoplastic material
Cover Fabric or leather in limited categories

To celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the company, established in Novedrate in 1966 by Piero Ambrogio Busnelli, B&B Italia has changed the “skin” of the armchair with footstool Grande Papilio, the seat designed by Naoto Fukasawa in 2009, and considered a cult item of contemporary design.

Its unmistakeable sculptured profile features an enveloping back that seems to open like a butterfly’s wings, hence the armchair’s name. For this important anniversary, Grande Papilio 50° is manufactured in fifty numbered copies with an original natural sheepskin cover: fifty shades of white, as many as the number of hues of the original leathers, to soften its profile and generate an ideal link with the classical pieces of Scandinavian design.
