The Papyrus Chair from Kartell was designed by the Bouroullec Brothers, Ronan and Erwan - a pair of designers with a highly iconic sophisticated and conceptual style.

The Papyrus Chair is a plastic, polycarbonate tub style chair which brings together simplicity, grace and refinement and is a reminder of something we may have seen in the past. In fact, Papyrus is really a contemporary version of the archetypal antique 'Rush' chair from a time when chair structures were decisive and strong!

With a modern makeover Papyrus combines translucent support with slender vertical reeding to the rear which runs along the entire outside of the rounded backrest which, in turn, envelopes the sitter with its soft and snug lines.

With a range of old fashioned yet brand new colours Papyrus is a chair which lends itself to today's classic yet contemporary interiors.

  • The seat itself is both comforting and welcoming and the whole chair structure is extremely light.
  • Due to packing restrictions these chairs must be ordered in multiples of two per colour.
  • Papyrus is also stackable up to 4 chairs high and is suitable for outdoor use.
