Chair #281

—Designed by Sori Yanagi

Long admired for it's sculptural silhouette, Sori Yanagi's 1954 Butterfly Stool has been an elusive beauty to net. Vintage examples often command upwards of a few thousand dollars at auction. Originally produced and distributed only in Japan, Vitra has secured the authorization and license to produce and distribute this classic.
