The B.K.F. Chair—also known as the Hardoy Chair, Butterfly Chair, Safari Chair, Sling Chair, or Wing Chair—was designed in Buenos Aires by Antonio Bonet , Juan Kurchan and Jorge Ferrari Hardoy. The chair received two design prizes at its introduction. In 1941 the chair was awarded the Acquisition Prize by the Museum of Modern Art, after Edgar Kaufmann Jr. bought the chair to MoMA’s attention.
