a new take on the stuffed chair

Literally. Those three images above are chairs, believe it or not. They were designed by Estudio Campana in Brazil. They are sold at Moss and here is what they had to say about the work:
“The Brazilian brothers Fernando and Humberto Campana design through a fiercely regional, political, and socioeconomic filter, fueled by an innate sense of irreverence tempered by a gentle humility and an appreciation of the poetic. Often combining found or mass-produced objects such as scraps of wood, children’s stuffed animals, and discarded fabric off-cuts with advanced industrialized technologies, their spirited work embodies a highly personal commentary on issues of waste, resourcefulness, poverty, and contemporary ideas of perfection, as well as on the debate over craft vs. production, globalization vs. nationalism, art vs. design, and historicism vs. the contemporary.”
So there you have it. I am sure you could also raid a carnival and make your own soft cuddly stuffed chair goodness.
