Papillon and Papillon Comfort


Papillon is a practical and elegant solution, that opens and closes as smoothly as the flap of a butterfly’s wings. It opens out into an extremely comfortable chair, perfect for meetings and conferences, complete with numerous useful accessories. When closed, it becomes easy to store and move to its next place of use. The Papillon Comfort line features an oversized seat and elegant detailing.
