Found throughout all of Mexico – known as “el butaque” or “la butaca” this chair is of Spanish origin. This butaca chair was originally designed in 1945, special edition reproduced in 2000 by VITRA. Clara Porset designed this particular chair for Luis Barragán, although the design license is registered to Luis Barragán. Materials include Mexican oak and wicker. Barragán used many versions of butacas for his interior designs, either with bigger or smaller armrests, covers of different materials, or with varying tilts to the backrest.
