Butaca Chair by Luis Barragán (1945)

Originally designed in 1945, special edition reproduced in 2000 by VITRA. Clara Porset designed this particular butaca chair for Luis Barragán, although the design license is registered to Luis Barragán. Nevertheless, the similarity of this butaca chair with the typical early 20th century caned butaques found in the state of Veracruz is amazing. Barragán used many versions of butacas for his interior designs, either with bigger or smaller armrests, covers of different materials, or with varying tilts to the backrest.
