PRLog - Feb. 27, 2012 - CAPITAL FEDERAL, Argentina -- THE STORY:  The BKF is a chair of iron and leather created in Buenos Aires, Argentina by Argentines and has become the symbol of the Argentine national design in the world. Globally referred to as the “Butterfly” chair, the BKF chair is the Icon of Modern Design. It was  developed in 1938, by Argentine architect and designer Jorge Ferrari Hardoy while working at the Parisian studio of Le Corbusier, en Buenos Aires. After Hardoy designed the chair, he presented his design to his co-workers at Le Corbusier- Antonio Bonet and Juan Kurchan and the three together finalized the details of the  chair and named it after the initials of their last names. In 1940, the three designers presented their chair at the 3rd Salon de Artistas Decoradores expo. From there on out, the chair has been on exhibition in the MoMA and many other top museums in the world.

MATERIALS: The cover is made of a thick 100% Argentine full-grain cow vegetable tanned saddle leather. You can customize to any of the color stains listed below. This chair is completely 100% made by hand.
The leather is stained to the color you want and then finished with a silicone protectant coating to protect from wear and then buffed to ensure it has a beautiful finish. The leather will last you a lifetime and will continue to look even more amazing as it ages due to the nature of this type and quality of leather. The color is stained into the leather and is not painted on(which is normally done on all leather products that are not of the best quality). This is a much better technique to color the leather as with time, you will never have a cracking effect of the color of the leather. Also when you stretch the leather, the color will still be embedded in the leather so you will not have any white stetched lines.

Another detail to point out is that the farm that these cow leathers come from do not cage the cows nor are they fed a ton of chemicals in feed lots. They are free roaming cows around the farm and only eat grass. This gives you the results of much better leather in general in every aspect but you may have some characteristics in the leather that are just more proof that your chair is made with real leather and does not look artificial. This is just one more reason why our chairs are so highly regarded, due to the fact that the leather is clearly genuine and that is what gives it such a distinct difference and edge above all other leather chairs. The chair is made up of 4 pieces of leather beautifully sewn together and every edge and seam is double-stitched to reinforce. The frame comes in black and is handcrafted to order, just for you. It is made of a solid wrought iron of 10mm and is extremely sturdy. Frame arrives unassembled in 4 pieces and is very easy to put together. It will arrive in 4 pieces and are super easy to slip the ends into one another.
