The Hardoy Butterfly Chair also called Hardoy Chair or BKF Chair is a design classic of the 40s. It is especially popular among design enthusiasts with high standards. In 1938 the BKF Chair was designed by the Austral Group in Buenos Aires. The designers Antonio Bonet, Juan Kurchan and Jorge Ferrari Hardoy chose their initials as a name for the Butterfly Chair. In 1940, when the chair received the Argentinian design award, Knoll started the production and worldwide distribution. In the first 10 years the BKF Hardoy Butterfly Chair was sold over 5 million times. Since 1941 the BKF Butterfly Chair can be found in the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York. It is one of the most successful exhibits and carries the name “design classic“ for good reason.
