We're very excited to give you a preview of our upcoming exhibition of exceptional contemporary design. And we think it couldn't start better than with this wonderful piece by the Campana brothers, of whom we have been long time fans. Made in limited edition, this Sobreiro armchair is nr 1 of 150 and part of a small exclusive collection of cork furniture, that further consists of 3 cabinets.⠀
The Campana brothers who are well known for their playful design and use of natural and exceptional materials, here for the first time work with cork. In the past they have used i.a. leather, palm fronds, toys, scrapwood and even fish skin.
"We've always been fascinated by cork, not only because it is an ecological material but because of its lightness," explained Humberto Campana.
"The texture, variety of applications and insulation properties enrich the possibilities of using this material, in order to express new concepts and gestures. It's like marble that can be sculpted."⠀
