With its sculptural design, lightweight and exceptional seating comfort the Tripolina is considered the precursor of the Hardoy Butterfly Chair. For the first time presented to the public in 1904 at an exhibition in Saint Louis, the chair became quickly popular. So was the Tripolina well received among the military because of its flexible handling, and also artists appreciated the then unprecedented comfort. The industrialist Joseph Fendy had construction and design of the Tripolina already patented in 1877. However, the true inventor of the chair is still considered unknown. The frame of Tripolina Chairs is manufactured from wood of the Patagonian Cherry; it is foldable and weather resistant. To emphasize the exceptional seating comfort of the chair, we reinforce the cover with vegetable tanned leather from cattle bare neck of the above-mentioned breed Holstein.
