Ge460 Butterfly Armchair by Hans J. Wegner

Ge460 Butterfly Armchair by Hans J. Wegner for Getama

The GE460 “Butterfly” is designed by Hans J. Wegner. The chair “Butterfly” is like a butterfly that is ready to put off.

It was created and shown for the first time in 1977, but was designed in terms of its time.

The design is sculptural with a clear division into the load -bearing – the massive frame – and the borne – shells.

“Butterfly” is especially suitable as a freestanding chair, but with its parallel sides can also be placed on straight rows.

Dikkert van Dykmeyer

 


It is very possible I’m trying to source this chair for my own house, The Dikkert (i.e. fat one) from Dykmeyer, a subsidiary of the Machinekamer, two companies who are re issuing Belgian steel rod chair manufacturer’s Tubax chairs.
