Grande Papilio Chair by Naoto Fukasawa
Naoto Fukasawa designed this chair for B&BItalia.
I noticed it at B&BItalia’s IMM 2013 booth.

“traditional series: dining chair with arms” by naoto fukasawa for the 2008 maruni collection.
naoto fukasawa has created two new collections of wood furnishings. â€˜hiroshimaâ€™ is a collection of dining chairs and tables which is made from naturally finished beech and oak. the other collection is the â€˜traditional seriesâ€™ which is inspired by maruniâ€™s previous mediterranean and versaille collections. this collection merges european decorativeness with the craftsmanship of japanese woodworkers. all images by yoneo kawabe, courtesy of maruni wood industry inc.
