Extreme Seating: Campana Brothers Banquete Chairs

Yep, its a chair.

These chairs from the Fernando and Humberto Campana have been around for a few years, but we've always had an.. er, soft spot for them. Maybe its because we've had piles of stuffed animals on our chairs for years anyway. In any event, if you've never seen them, we wanted to share...

The Campana Brothers' banquet chairs are available in the "extreme seating" section of the Moss web site. These chairs are some of the most whimsical among their spirited line of furniture which uses unexpected combinations of found materials such as rubber hose, tissue paper, string and furry animals. Each chair is handmade especially for Moss and is a signed, limited edition of 25 or 35 each-- they've got pandas, teddy bears, alligators, sharks or one with a big jumbled mix.

In all of their work, we love the Campana Brothers zest for life, their use of ordinary objects and their ability to take risks in design. That, and their furniture, while there's no way we could afford it, makes us smile.
