About the Butterfly Chair
The butterfly chair also known as BKF chair, is a modern piece of furniture designed by Antonio Bonet, Juan Kurchan and Jorge Ferrari in 1938. The designers last name initials gave the name (BKF) to them. During 1940, the chair was shown at the 3rd Salon de Artistas Decoradores exhibition where it was discovered by the Museum of Modern Art (NY). At the request of MoMA, the designers sent 3 pre-production chairs to New York. One is still exhibited in the MoMA collection and one is at the Frank Lloyd Wright house Fallingwater (built for the Kaufmann family), but no one knows where the third chair went...ades.
