A polycarbonate tub style chair which is a contemporary version of the antique Rush chair. Papyrus has slender vertical reeding to the rear which runs along the entire outside of the rounded backrest. This lightweight and comfortable chair lends itself to classic yet contemporary interiors. Papyrus stackable up to 4 chairs high. Available in crystal, orange red, rust, olive green, powder blue, smoke brown or smoke grey.


The Kartell Papyrus Chair designed by the Bouroullec brothers, is an admirable marriage of simplicity and refinement, grace and memory. Papyrus is a remake of the archetypical antique rush chair, from a time when chair structures were decisive and strong. The translucent plastic chair is lightweight and has hand-holds between the seat and curved back making it a great piece of modern furniture that can be used as a dining room chair, restaurant chair or even as an office chair. The new transparent polycarbonate Papyrus armchair is inspired by the linear, well-defined structure of vintage chairs. Papyrus combines a translucent structure with a very fine vertical ridged pattern, which covers the outer surface of the rounded backrest, with its soft, enveloping design. The seat is comfortable and welcoming, and the entire chair is very light. The range of transparent colours in which it is available heightens the special effects created by the patterned surfaces. The contemporary modern Kartell Papyrus Chair by Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec recounts the company’s experimentation with plastic and its different applications and performances, embodying a unique style that has become Kartell's trademark style. Kartell products are the creative fruits of a world-famous team of designers who have developed a unique affinity with the company over the years.
