Campana Favela chair for Edra
A rare chance to secure a preowned Favela chair by Brazil’s famous Fernando & Humberto Campana for Edra.
Designed by whom/when: Designed in 2003, the inimitable Favela chair quickly acquired design icon status due to it’s unique ‘craft’ like construction which references the Brazilian immigration crisis as interpreted by the Campana brothers.
Inspiration: Favelas are the timber ‘shanty’ towns of Rio, built from timber offcuts and named after the local timber spiecies used to construct them.
Fabrication: ‘pinus’ wood offcuts fixed by hand in a deliberately random way.
Hidden Features: Each chair is unique and made entirely from wasted pine offcuts. The ultimate in sustainable utilitarian design !
Design Consigned Stylist: This iconic Brazilian design adds an architectural and collectible Design statement to any contemporary project. Sculptural stand alone piece for entry areas, a special corner or under your statement staircase.
Design Consigned Collector: Authentic original, made in Italy by Edra. Typical example of the Campana Design style which involves the re use of found materials.
Stamp or Mark of authenticity: Wears Edra plaque.
Purchase Verification: One owner verified. 8 years old, minimal use with no faults or structural damage.
