Pretzel Chair with armrests by George Nelson, re-produced by Vitra.
George Nelson (1908–1986) numbers among the most important and influential figures in American design during the second half of the twentieth century.
The iconic Butterfly Stool, designed in 1954 by the Japanese designer Sori Yanagi, is a classic piece of furniture that uniquely combines Eastern forms with the plywood moulding technique developed by Charles and Ray Eames.
The gently curving silhouette of the twin seat shells is reminiscent of a butterfly's wings – eternally poised for flight.
The stool is made of maple or rosewood.
