In conceiving PAPYON, Swiss designer and architect Arnd Küchel searched for examples of nature's pattern making and elegant practicality. The lightweight, flexible and aesthetic wing of a butterfly inspired the first sketches of PAPYON, and Küchel was quick to note the similarities between these organic formations and DEDON Fiber.
Like the butterfly that inspired its design, the new PAPYON collection by Arnd Küchel is a delightful union of beauty, grace and pleasure. The uniquely designed Wing chair and accompanying Footstool are created using distinct weaving textures, combined with an innovative technique. In nature, harmony is created through contrasts, and PAPYON's colorway elegantly encapsulates this truth: 'nectar' combines warm reds and oranges. The result is a collection that represents the next metamorphosis of DEDON Fibers and craftsmanship.

"The simplicity of nature is always my first stimulus. For PAPYON, it was the shape and the lightweight, filigree-like structure of a butterfly that inspired me."
