Contemporary polycarbonate chair by Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec
The Bouroullec brothers, a pair of designers with a
highly iconic, sophisticated and conceptual style,
have designed the transparent polycarbonate
Papyrus chair for Kartell.
An admirable marriage of simplicity and refinement,
grace and memory, Papyrus is a remake of the
archetypal antique rush chair, from a time when
chair structures were decisive and strong. This chair
combines a translucent support with a slender
vertical pebbling, running along the entire outside of
the rounded backrest, with its soft and snug lines.
The seat is comfortable and welcoming, and the
entire structure is light.
Papyrus' wide range of brand-new "old-fashioned"
colours make the play of the worked surfaces even
more evident and attractive.
