Prototype ‘Mariposa’ sofa, designed for the XI Milan Triennale at Phillips estimated £70,000 – 90,000 and sold for £252,000!!!
This Settee seems to me quite unique. It was sold with a 1 seater Ottoman at Wright auction of September 10, 2020 for $3,900 while estimated at $2,000–3,000.
This industrially knit fabric was created to respond to human interaction and physically change when sat upon. The tubes expand and reveal a hidden color as the chair flexes to support weight. This dual seater was created in collaboration with Mayela Mujica MFA Furniture 2016. This chair will be exhibited at both the XXI Triennale International Exhibition Milan 2016 as a part of the Milan Furniture Fair and ICFF in New York.

Another chair designed by students of the Rhode Island School of Design (RISD) 2016 design class.
If you search Joaquim Tenreiro, you automatically find R & Company who have several Tenreiro chairs in stock. They specialize in Brazilean design. Good to know.
