BKF: THE CHAIR

Chair designed by architect and urban planner Antonio Bonet
Castellana, born in Barcelona on 13 August 1913.
It was designed in Argentina in 1938, when he was working
with his partners Kurchan and Jorge Ferrari-Hardoy, both
architects. Their names were behind the acronym BKF.

Life magazine selected it as one of the 100 best designs of
the century.

Since 1944, it has formed part of the permanent
