Butaque LOUNGE CHAIR

By Clara Porset

Cuban born Clara Porset was a woman in a man’s world. Strong willed and eager to be recognized, she worked closely with Luis Barragán designing some of the most iconic modern Mexican furniture of the 20th century. Josef and Anni Albers introduced Porset to Michael van Beuren who went on to produce many of her furniture designs. She is most famed for her reimagination of the classic Latin American Butaque chair and her many versions of it. Despite others laying claim to its reinterpretations, Porset’s designs for Luis Barragán are by far the most well-known and are what we base our pieces on.
