The Bouroullec brothers, a pair of designers with a highly iconic, sophisticated and conceptual style, have designed the transparent polycarbonate Papyrus chair for Kartell.

An admirable marriage of simplicity and refinement, grace and memory, Papyrus is a remake of the archetypal antique rush chair, from a time when chair structures were decisive and strong. This chair combines a translucent support with a slender vertical pebbling, running along the entire outside of the rounded backrest, with its soft and snug lines.

The seat is comfortable and welcoming, and the entire structure is light.

Papyrus’ wide range of brand-new “old-fashioned” colours make the play of the worked surfaces even more evident and attractive.

The new transparent polycarbonate Papyrus armchair is inspired by the linear, well-defined structure of vintage chairs. Papyrus combines a translucent structure with a very fine vertical ridged pattern, which covers the outer surface of the rounded backrest, with its soft, enveloping design.

The seat is comfortable and welcoming, and the entire chair is very light. The range of transparent colours in which it is available heightens the special effects created by the patterned surfaces.
