Inspired by all that a butterfly represents, the Butterfly chair was designed to create comfortable seating entirely made in solid wood. The crafted wooden seat and minimal backrest details of the chair hold a complex construction that ensures comfort and captures the delight in the beauty of a butterfly.

The chair is entirely constructed using traditional joinery techniques. The wooden backrest and the seat details are ergonomically designed to provide comfort and to function efficiently in dining and study spaces.

The design makes a statement with its sleek yet solid teak wood sections and fine solid brass detailing. The chair is finished by hand, using Zero VOC, oil-based finishes that are safe and sustainable. The design is built to last as an heirloom and celebrates design, craftsmanship, quality while setting a tone for new Indian contemporary design.
