Sobreiro "Wave" Cabinet by the Campana Brothers, Brazil 2018

$10,500

About

Part of the limited edition Sobreiro Collection, this “Wave Cabinet” is perhaps the most recognisable of the cork cabinets in the exclusive collection by the Campana Brothers. The wave-shaped front is masterfully crafted from the unique cork material. The texture, colour and pattern of the cork make this cabinet visually striking. Although heavy looking, with the addition of the airy waves, the cabinet manages to look delicate and striking at the same time. The cabinet has a structure made of MDF (medium-density fibreboard), and is further made of expanded natural cork agglomerate. This material is made by heating cork, without the need to use any additive. The Sobreiro collection was developed in partnership with Consulate General of Portugal in Sao Paulo, cork supplier Amorim, the furniture company Época and the brand European Capital of Furniture (Capital Europeia do Móvel). The pieces of the Sobreiro Collection were exhibited at the Consulate General of Portugal in Sao Paulo in 2018. Made upon order: Estimated production time, ca 6-8 weeks Condition: New. Because this is a handmade artistic work made of a natural product, each item is one-of-a-kind and minor variations in colour, texture, shape, grain, and sizing can occur. Dimensions: 31.5 in. W x 15.75 in. D x 63 in. H 80 cm W x 40 cm D x 160 cm H About the designer: The Campana Brothers, Humberto and Fernando, are among the icons of contemporary furniture design. Since 1983, the Brazilian siblings have achieved both national and international recognition and popularity. Their studio, Estudio Campana, is based in São Paulo, and often collaborates with local communities, factories, and industries. There is a huge emphasis on handcrafted and artisanal work. Via their pieces, the Campana Brothers institute conversation around ethical production, sustainability and social awareness into some of the world’s most alluring interiors. Their unique designs have earned them numerous awards, including the Ordre des Arts et Lettre from the Ministry of Culture in France and the Order of Cultural Merit in Brazil. Their work has been the subject of several exhibitions, including the 2008 exhibition at the Cooper Hewitt Smithsonian Design Museum in New York. ~H.

About the Designer

Campana Brothers

The Campana Brothers are among Brazil’s foremost contemporary furniture designers. Inspired by their country’s vernacular culture, Humberto and Fernando Campana combine everyday objects in unexpected ways, often waste materials like rope, cardboard, plastic tubing, and aluminum wire, to make their singular creations. Their designs have been manufactured by such companies as Alessi, Swarovski and Cappellini. And they have received numerous honors, including being named Designer of the Year both at Design Miami in 2008, and by Maison & Objet in Paris in 2012.

Humberto Campana was born in Rio Claro in 1953 and earned a bachelor’s degree in law from the University of São Paulo. Fernando was born in 1961 in Brotas, and graduated from the São Paulo School of Fine Arts with a bachelor’s degree in architecture. The brothers started working together in 1983, crafting furniture using their signature method of adaptive reuse. Their pieces frequently refer to Brazilian social and cultural traditions and entities. Among these are the country’s favelas, or shantytowns, that have grown up around major cities. An homage to the resourcefulness with which the residents of São Paulo’s favelas make use of the materials at hand, repurposing cast-off objects in ingenious designs and constructions, their Favela armchair is made of cast-off strips of wood (the first one was made from discarded slats from a fruit market), which are glued and nailed together seemingly at random. The end result, however, is a compact, solid and well-proportioned chair.

By 1997, some of the Campanas’ pieces were being produced and sold in Italy, including the Edra Vermelha armchair, constructed of cord handwoven around a steel frame. In 1998, the brothers became the first Brazilian designers to have their work exhibited at the Museum of Modern Art in New York. Today their furniture is included in MoMA’s permanent collection and in those of numerous other major institutions, such as the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Philadelphia Museum of Art, and the Vitra Design Museum.
