SOLD 1950's Vintage Knoll International BKF Butterfly Chair Jorge Ferrari Hardoy
Listed for sale is a gorgeous original Knoll BKF Butterfly Chair, designed by Antonio Bonet, Juan Kurchan, and Jorge Ferrari-Hardoy in 1938. This example dates to the early 1950's and came from an architect's estate in Vermont with a number of other very early and rare Alvar Aalto pieces (and others).
This example retains its original leather sling cover, which is showing some notable wear, though is still usable as it is. The patina is lovely and reflects its originality. The frame also shows some wear and is in great shape structurally.
Early examples like this are increasingly difficult to find in original condition, making this example especially rare.
